Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: cationic amino acid transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: lipid metabolic process; growth; amino acid transport.
14 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: larva; embryonic/larval fat body; wing.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Amino acid permease domain; Amino acid/polyamine transporter I; Cationic amino acid transporter.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 and 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early pupal stages, in adult female stages.
