|Name||CMP-sialic acid synthase|
The gene CMP-sialic acid synthase is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Csas (CG32220, FBgn0052220). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: N-acylneuraminate cytidylyltransferase activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: CMP-N-acetylneuraminate biosynthetic process. 3 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Acylneuraminate cytidylyltransferase. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed within 18-24 hour embryonic stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, larval/adult central nervous system. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1638880_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Csas. Gene sequence location is 3L:19981127..19982047.
