The gene SMC2 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\SMC2 (CG10212, FBgn0027783). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: DNA binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: mitotic chromosome condensation; mitosis; mitotic spindle organization; neurogenesis. 10 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mesothoracic tergum; embryonic/larval brain. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: RecF/RecN/SMC; SMCs flexible hinge; Structural maintenance of chromosomes Smc2; Structural maintenance of chromosomes protein. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of very low expression. Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval central nervous system, adult ovary. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1634149_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of SMC2. Gene sequence location is 2R:10736126..10740158.
