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.
An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: digestion; chitin-based cuticle development; digestive system process; defecation; oogenesis.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: abdomen; optic lobe; crop; wing; egg chamber; adult brain.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Acyltransferase 3; Nose resistant-to-fluoxetine protein, N-terminal.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages.
