|Flybase description||The gene giant fibre A is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\gfA (CG32538, FBgn0086778).|
|Expression data along the gut||
|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: nicotinic acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: synaptic transmission; regulation of excitatory postsynaptic membrane potential; visual behavior; jump response.
23 alleles are reported.
The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: giant fiber neuron.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand-binding; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel transmembrane domain; Neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel, conserved site; Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed during late pupal stages.
