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: synaptic vesicle amine transmembrane transporter activity; monoamine transmembrane transporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: dopamine transport; monoamine transport; histamine transport; synaptic vesicle amine transport.
18 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: oocyte; embryonic/larval neuromuscular junction.
It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: Major facilitator superfamily; Major facilitator superfamily domain; Major facilitator superfamily domain, general substrate transporter; Multidrug resistance protein.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during early pupal stages.
