Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: copper ion transmembrane transporter activity; copper uptake transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: cellular copper ion homeostasis; copper ion transport; regulation of heart rate.
12 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: abdomen; eye; trichogen cell; adult cuticle; mesothoracic tergum; spiracle primordium; ommatidium; mouth hooks; mesothoracic bristle.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Ctr copper transporter.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages.
