Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: production of small RNA involved in gene silencing by RNA; central nervous system development; germ-line stem cell maintenance; production of siRNA involved in RNA interference; pre-miRNA processing; miRNA metabolic process; female germ-line stem cell division; regulation of production of small RNA involved in gene silencing by RNA.
24 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 11 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; multicellular structure; anatomical structure; organ system subdivision; ovariole; portion of tissue; multi-tissue structure; cytoplasmic part; external compound sense organ; organelle; female organism.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Double-stranded RNA-binding; Double-stranded RNA-binding-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed in adult male stages.
