Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: GTPase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to starvation; regulation of reactive oxygen species metabolic process; positive regulation of cell size; ribosome biogenesis; positive regulation of translation; cell growth; G1/S transition of mitotic cell cycle; positive regulation of ribosome biogenesis; imaginal disc growth.
33 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 18 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; cell cycle; adult segment; external compound sense organ; cellular process; cell cycle process; nuclear part; synapse; imaginal precursor.
It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Small GTP-binding protein domain; Small GTPase superfamily; Small GTPase superfamily, Ras type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during late larval stages, during early pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes.
