To return to FlyBase, see FlyBase Gene Report: Dmel\sdk.
The gene sidekick is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\sdk (CG5227, FBgn0021764). 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: negative regulation of photoreceptor cell differentiation; compound eye cone cell differentiation; pigment cell differentiation. 33 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: photoreceptor; eye; interommatidial bristle; cone cell; lens; ommatidium; mystery cell; pigment cell. It has 6 annotated transcripts and 6 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Fibronectin, type III; Immunoglobulin I-set; Immunoglobulin subtype; Immunoglobulin subtype 2; Immunoglobulin-like; Immunoglobulin-like fold. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of low expression. Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval central nervous system, larval salivary gland, larval trachea, adult ovary, adult male accessory gland. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1628319_s_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 6 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of sdk. Gene sequence location is X:580873..643529.
