Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: transketolase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of chromatin silencing; cytoplasmic microtubule organization.
28 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Transketolase binding site; Transketolase, C-terminal; Transketolase, C-terminal/Pyruvate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase, domain II; Transketolase, N-terminal; Transketolase-like, C-terminal; Transketolase-like, pyrimidine-binding domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
