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: iron ion transmembrane transporter activity; transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: spermatid differentiation.
10 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: elongation stage spermatid; mitochondrial derivative; spermatid cyst; spermatozoon.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Mitochondrial carrier domain; Mitochondrial carrier protein; Mitochondrial substrate/solute carrier.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed during late pupal stages, in adult male stages.
