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 for 14 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: cellular process; establishment or maintenance of cell polarity; cellular component organization or biogenesis; biological regulation; multicellular organism reproduction; establishment or maintenance of bipolar cell polarity; system development; gamete generation; anterior/posterior axis specification; post-embryonic organ morphogenesis; growth; establishment or maintenance of polarity of follicular epithelium.
38 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: leg; posterior crossvein; eye; crossvein; embryonic/larval neuromuscular junction; follicle cell; eye photoreceptor cell; wing.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Cadherin-like; Dystroglycan; Dystroglycan-type cadherin-like; Immunoglobulin-like fold.
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 12-18 embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
