|Name||Zinc finger protein RP-8|
The gene Zinc finger protein RP-8 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Zfrp8 (CG3260, FBgn0021875). 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: cell proliferation; somatic stem cell division; embryonic hemopoiesis. 10 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: embryonic/larval lymph gland; embryonic/larval hemocyte; melanotic mass. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Programmed cell death protein 2, C-terminal; Zinc finger, MYND-type. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression. Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Little or no expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1639659_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Zfrp8. Gene sequence location is 2R:20021528..20022928.
