|Name||Insulin-like peptide 5|
The gene Insulin-like peptide 5 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Ilp5 (CG33273, FBgn0044048). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: insulin receptor binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: female mating behavior. 9 alleles are reported. The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: embryonic/larval neuroblast. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Insulin family; Insulin, conserved site; Insulin-like. 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 at stages throughout the larval period, during early pupal stages, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval/adult central nervous system. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, larval Malpighian tubules. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1624745_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Ilp5. Gene sequence location is 3L:9816449..9816997.
