Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Its molecular function is unknown.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: axonogenesis.
8 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has 16 annotated transcripts and 16 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: EMI domain; FAS1 domain.
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 12-18 embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages.
