Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: histone methyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: histone H3-K27 methylation.
9 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: WD40 repeat; WD40 repeat 2; WD40 repeat, conserved site; WD40 repeat, subgroup; WD40 repeat-like-containing domain; WD40-repeat-containing domain; WD40/YVTN repeat-like-containing domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages, in adult female stages.
