The gene brown is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\bw (CG17632, FBgn0000241). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: ATPase activity, coupled to transmembrane movement of substances. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sensory perception of sound; ommochrome biosynthetic process. 156 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: ocellus; hemolymph; eye; wing; pigment granule; pigment cell. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: AAA+ ATPase domain; ABC transporter, conserved site; ABC transporter-like; ABC-2 type transporter; Pigment precursor permease. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression. Peak expression observed within 06-18 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Two or more Affy2 ProbeSets identify exons of this gene. This is a summary of the tissue expression peaks exhibited in at least one of these ProbeSets. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval Malpighian tubules. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye, adult Malpighian tubules, larval fat body. Gene sequence location is 2R:19415328..19426016.
