The gene Sialyltransferase is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\ST6Gal (CG4871, FBgn0035050). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sialyltransferase activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: neuromuscular junction development; oligosaccharide metabolic process. 11 alleles are reported. The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: embryonic/larval neuromuscular junction. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Glycosyl transferase, family 29. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed during early larval stages, during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult brain. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1630522_a_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of ST6Gal. Gene sequence location is 2R:20578945..20581909.
