|Gene details (from Flybase)|| It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
It is reported to have molecular function: cation channel activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: larval feeding behavior; smooth muscle contraction; sperm competition; sperm motility; sperm storage; spermatogenesis.
17 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: flagellum; spermatozoon.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Polycystin cation channel, PKD1/PKD2.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
