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: structural constituent of chitin-based cuticle.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: chitin-based cuticle development; body morphogenesis.
7 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: larva; pupa; adult; trichogen cell; embryonic/larval dorsal trunk; embryonic/larval tracheal system; mesothoracic tergum.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Domain of unknown function DUF243.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of no expression detected.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages, during early larval stages.
