The gene Max is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Max (CG9648, FBgn0017578). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity; protein heterodimerization activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter. 16 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: trichogen cell; anterior scutellar bristle; scutellar bristle; wing; anterior pupal spiracle; posterior scutellar bristle. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Myc-type, basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression. Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Nearly all larval and adult tissues/organs expressed at moderate levels. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult crop, adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, 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. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1625517_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Max. Gene sequence location is 3L:19255626..19257284.
