The gene Cecropin A1 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\CecA1 (CG1365, FBgn0000276). 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: defense response to Gram-negative bacterium; autophagic cell death; humoral immune response; defense response to Gram-positive bacterium; salivary gland cell autophagic cell death; antibacterial humoral response. 4 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: adult posterior midgut epithelium; mesothoracic tergum. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Cecropin; Cecropin, diptera. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed during early pupal stages, in adult female stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No FlyAtlas data available because no Affy2 ProbeSet aligns to an exon of CecA1. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: No relevant information because no Affy2 ProbeSet aligns to an exon of CecA1. Gene sequence location is 3R:26036596..26036995.
