|Name||membrane steroid binding protein|
The gene membrane steroid binding protein is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\MSBP (CG9066, FBgn0030703). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: ecdysone binding. The biological processes in which it is involved are not known. 2 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Cytochrome b5-like heme/steroid binding domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of moderately high expression. Peak expression observed during late larval stages, during early pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: High or moderate levels of expression observed in all larval and adult organs/tissues. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult thoracico-abdominal ganglion, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval/adult Malpighian tubules, adult heart, larval/adult fat body, larval/adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, adult male accessory gland, larval/adult carcass. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult testis. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1623481_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of MSBP. Gene sequence location is X:15781600..15784142.
