Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding; histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K9 specific); double-stranded methylated DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: wing disc development; histone methylation; regulation of gene expression, epigenetic; histone H3-K9 methylation; DNA hypermethylation; instar larval or pupal development; negative regulation of gene expression, epigenetic; oogenesis; female germ-line stem cell division; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent.
28 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 13 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; multicellular structure; organelle; external compound sense organ; adult segment; portion of tissue; intracellular non-membrane-bounded organelle; intracellular organelle; intracellular organelle part; imaginal precursor.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Methyl-CpG DNA binding; Post-SET domain; Pre-SET domain; SET domain.
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 00-06 hour embryonic stages.
