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; Toll binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: defense response to fungus; dorsal/ventral pattern formation; Toll signaling pathway; defense response to Gram-positive bacterium; antifungal peptide production; positive regulation of antifungal peptide production.
55 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: filzkorper; denticle belt.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: DEATH-like; Toll-Interleukin receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed during early pupal stages.
