The gene Cytochrome b5 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Cyt-b5 (CG2140, FBgn0264294). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: electron carrier activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: instar larval development; regulation of hemocyte differentiation; regulation of cell cycle; regulation of hemocyte proliferation. 12 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: lamellocyte; hemocyte. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Cytochrome b5, heme-binding site; Cytochrome b5-like heme/steroid binding domain. Gene sequence location is 2R:3421011..3423441.
