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.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of cell shape; apposition of dorsal and ventral imaginal disc-derived wing surfaces; larval somatic muscle development; cell adhesion; maintenance of epithelial integrity, open tracheal system; muscle attachment; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; phagocytosis, engulfment.
29 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/larval midgut primordium; embryonic proventriculus; muscle attachment site; gastric caecum primordium; embryonic/larval somatic muscle.
It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Band 4.
1 domain; FERM central domain; FERM conserved site; FERM domain; FERM, N-terminal; FERM/acyl-CoA-binding protein, 3-helical bundle; I/LWEQ; Insulin receptor substrate-1, PTB; Pleckstrin homology-type; Talin, central; Talin-related; Vinculin-binding site-containing domain; Vinculin/alpha-catenin.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages.
