The gene Lysozyme X is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\LysX (CG9120, FBgn0004431). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: lysozyme activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: defense response. 4 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Glycoside hydrolase, family 22; Glycoside hydrolase, family 22, conserved site; Glycoside hydrolase, family 22, lysozyme; Lysozyme-like domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed during late larval stages, during early pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval Malpighian tubules. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1632720_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of LysX. Gene sequence location is 3L:1194739..1195302.
