This gene is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\CG8498 (FBgn0031992). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: fatty-acyl-CoA binding. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: cellular acyl-CoA homeostasis. 2 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Acyl-CoA-binding protein, ACBP; Acyl-CoA-binding protein, ACBP, conserved site; FERM/acyl-CoA-binding protein, 3-helical bundle. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression. Peak expression observed within 06-12 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: High or moderate levels of expression observed in all larval and adult organs/tissues. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval hindgut, larval Malpighian tubules, larval fat body, larval salivary gland. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, adult hindgut, adult Malpighian tubules, adult heart, adult fat body, adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, adult male reproductive system, larval/adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1636942_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of CG8498. Gene sequence location is 2L:8161794..8162418.
