Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: heart development; specification of segmental identity, antennal segment; neuroblast development; lymph gland development.
165 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 62 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; organ system; thoracic segment; humeral trabecule; integumentary plate; imaginal precursor; non-connected developing system; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; external compound sense organ.
It has 11 annotated transcripts and 11 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Homeobox; Homeobox protein, antennapedia type; Homeobox protein, antennapedia type, conserved site; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeobox, eukaryotic; Homeodomain-like; Homeodomain-related.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis.
