Intestinal gene expression in different physiological conditions There is not condition-dependent expression data available for this gene.
Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: negative regulation of biosynthetic process of antibacterial peptides active against Gram-negative bacteria; negative regulation of proteolysis; negative regulation of peptidoglycan recognition protein signaling pathway.
6 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: fat body.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: UAS; UBA-like; UBX.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, during early pupal stages, in adult female stages.
