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: establishment of planar polarity; negative regulation of smoothened signaling pathway; imaginal disc-derived wing hair organization.
17 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: wing vein L3; 1st posterior cell; anterior wing margin; wing vein L4; wing blade; wing; scutellum.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
