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.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: chitin binding; chitin deacetylase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: open tracheal system development; regulation of tube length, open tracheal system.
16 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/first instar larval cuticle; embryonic/larval trachea; cuticle; embryonic/larval dorsal trunk; embryonic/larval tracheal system.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Chitin binding domain; Glycoside hydrolase/deacetylase, beta/alpha-barrel; Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor class A repeat; Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor class A, conserved site; Polysaccharide deacetylase.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression.
Peak expression observed within 06-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period.
