Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of protein ubiquitination; determination of adult lifespan.
18 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: embryonic/larval salivary gland.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Light chain 3 (LC3).
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
