Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: myosin II heavy chain binding; myosin II light chain binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: myoblast fusion; muscle cell homeostasis.
17 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: midgut constriction; embryonic myoblast; fusion competent cell; A1-7 dorsal acute muscle 1.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Ankyrin repeat; Ankyrin repeat-containing domain; Mib-herc2; Zinc finger, RING-type; Zinc finger, RING/FYVE/PHD-type; Zinc finger, ZZ-type.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression.
Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
