This gene is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\CG17896 (FBgn0023537). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: methylmalonate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase (acylating) activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: valine metabolic process; pyrimidine nucleobase metabolic process. 6 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Aldehyde dehydrogenase domain; Aldehyde dehydrogenase, C-terminal; Aldehyde dehydrogenase, N-terminal; Aldehyde dehydrogenase, conserved site; Aldehyde/histidinol dehydrogenase; Methylmalonate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase. 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 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, in adult female stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Nearly all larval and adult organs/tissues expressed at high levels. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval/adult Malpighian tubules, adult heart, larval/adult fat body, larval/adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, adult male accessory gland, larval/adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1624521_a_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of CG17896. Gene sequence location is X:384820..387527.
