This gene is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\CG8909 (FBgn0030706). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: low-density lipoprotein receptor activity. The biological processes in which it is involved are not known. 8 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: EGF-like calcium-binding; EGF-like calcium-binding, conserved site; EGF-like, conserved site; EGF-type aspartate/asparagine hydroxylation site; Epidermal growth factor-like domain; LDLR class B repeat; Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor class A repeat; Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor class A, conserved site; Six-bladed beta-propeller, TolB-like. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult central nervous system. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, larval central nervous system. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1628419_a_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of CG8909. Gene sequence location is X:15804903..15815046.
