Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: protein N-linked glycosylation.
6 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase II.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages.
