Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: frizzled binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: ventral furrow formation; defense response to Gram-positive bacterium; regulation of embryonic development.
11 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mesoderm; ventral furrow.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Wnt.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
