|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: voltage-gated potassium channel activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: embryonic development via the syncytial blastoderm; cardiac muscle contraction; regulation of heart rate.
33 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: adult heart.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Ion transport; Potassium channel, voltage dependent, KCNQ; Potassium channel, voltage dependent, KCNQ, C-terminal; Voltage-dependent potassium channel.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
