Symbol Dmel\MSBP
Name membrane steroid binding protein
Species Drosophila melanogaster
Annotation symbol CG9066
FlyBase ID FBgn0030703

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.
