Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: protein transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: dorsal closure; cuticle development; head involution; cell death; negative regulation of autophagy.
30 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/first instar larval cuticle; midgut constriction 2; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; embryonic/larval midgut primordium; tracheal metamere; embryonic/larval tracheal system; crystal cell; denticle belt; embryonic leading edge cell.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: SecY protein; SecY subunit domain; Translocon Sec61/SecY, plug domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult female stages.
