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: actin binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: axon guidance; dendrite morphogenesis; neuron remodeling; sarcomere organization.
29 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 18 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; peripheral nervous system; multicellular structure; organelle; cytoplasmic part; adult segment; non-connected developing system; eo support cell; intracellular non-membrane-bounded organelle.
It has 13 annotated transcripts and 13 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Calponin homology domain; Domain of unknown function DUF3585; Fumarate reductase/succinate dehydrogenase flavoprotein, N-terminal; Zinc finger, LIM-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed during early pupal stages.
