Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: GTPase activity; GTP binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chitin-based cuticle development; chitin-based larval cuticle pattern formation; endoplasmic reticulum organization; negative regulation of dendrite morphogenesis; positive regulation of cuticle pigmentation; larval chitin-based cuticle development; embryonic heart tube development.
12 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/first instar larval cuticle; sarcomere; cardioblast; embryonic pericardial cell; embryonic/larval epidermis.
It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Small GTP-binding protein domain; Small GTPase superfamily, ARF/SAR type; Small GTPase superfamily, SAR1-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
