Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of gene silencing; DNA replication; DNA endoreduplication.
29 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: condensed nuclear chromosome; embryonic/larval salivary gland; mitotic anaphase; spindle; embryonic/larval tracheal system; imaginal disc; G2 phase of mitotic cell cycle; mitotic metaphase.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Zinc finger, AD-type; Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like; Zinc finger, C2H2-type/integrase, DNA-binding; Zinc finger, RING/FYVE/PHD-type.
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.
