Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: calcium ion binding.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion.
5 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Cadherin; Cadherin conserved site; Cadherin-like.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
