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.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: 4-hydroxybenzoate octaprenyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: defense response to fungus; defense response to Gram-positive bacterium; determination of adult lifespan; insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway; defense response to Gram-negative bacterium.
11 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: trichogen cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: 4-hydroxybenzoate polyprenyl transferase; UbiA prenyltransferase family.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
