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.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: AMP-activated protein kinase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to DNA damage stimulus; neuron homeostasis; maintenance of apical/basal cell polarity.
13 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: 5-AMP-activated protein kinase, beta subunit, interaction domain.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderately high expression.
Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes.
