Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: peptidoglycan receptor activity; protein binding; Gram-negative bacterial cell surface binding; protein dimerization activity; peptidoglycan binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: immune response; response to bacterium; positive regulation of biosynthetic process of antibacterial peptides active against Gram-negative bacteria; defense response to Gram-negative bacterium; positive regulation of antibacterial peptide biosynthetic process; antimicrobial humoral response; peptidoglycan recognition protein signaling pathway; defense response to virus; antibacterial humoral response.
37 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 7 annotated transcripts and 7 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase domain; Peptidoglycan recognition protein; Peptidoglycan recognition protein family domain, metazoa/bacteria.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during early pupal stages.
