The gene bereft is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\bft (CR42938, FBgn0263107). It is a miRNA_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Its molecular function is unknown. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chaeta development; negative regulation of apoptotic process; chaeta morphogenesis; gene silencing by miRNA; compound eye morphogenesis. 18 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 12 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; organ system; adult; thoracic segment; external compound sense organ; humeral trabecule; postalar bristle; eye; wing margin bristle. It has one annotated transcript. Gene sequence location is 2L:11953410..11953503.
