Gene Summary
dendritic arbor reduction 1 (dar1) encodes a transcription factor in the Kruppel-like factor family. It determines the multipolar morphology of neurons by promoting the growth of dendrites (but not axons), in part by controlling the expression of regulators of microtubules and microtubule-based transport.

[Date last reviewed: 2019-03-07]
Gene Group (FlyBase)
SP1/KLF TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS -
The Sp1/KLF (Sp1-like/Kruppel-like factors) family of zinc finger proteins are DNA binding proteins. They can act as activators or repressors and some members bind sequences within Polycomb Response Elements (PREs). (Adapted from FBrf0188187).
C2H2 ZINC FINGER TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS -
Zinc finger C2H2 transcription factors are sequence-specific DNA binding proteins that regulate transcription. They possess DNA-binding domains that are formed from repeated Cys2His2 zinc finger motifs. (Adapted from PMID:1835093, FBrf0220103 and FBrf0155739).
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
Transcriptional regulator which promotes dendrite growth by suppressing, either directly or indirectly, the expression of the microtubule-severing protein spas (PubMed:21368042). Determines multipolar neuron morphology in postmitotic neurons by positively regulating the expression of genes involved in nuclear positioning including several dynein genes and the nuclear migration protein nudC (PubMed:26490864).

Model Confidence:
  • Very high (pLDDT > 90)
  • Confident (90 > pLDDT > 70)
  • Low (70 > pLDDT > 50)
  • Very low (pLDDT < 50)

AlphaFold produces a per-residue confidence score (pLDDT) between 0 and 100. Some regions with low pLDDT may be unstructured in isolation.
