Symbol Dmel\bwa
Name brain washing
Species Drosophila melanogaster
Annotation symbol CG13969
FlyBase ID FBgn0045064

The gene brain washing is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\bwa (CG13969, FBgn0045064). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: ceramidase activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: ceramide catabolic process; brain development. 15 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mushroom body beta'-lobe; mushroom body beta-lobe; ellipsoid body. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Ceramidase. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of low expression. Peak expression observed during late larval stages, during early pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval midgut, adult male accessory gland. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult central nervous system, adult midgut, larval hindgut, larval Malpighian tubules, adult fat body, adult salivary gland, adult spermathecae, adult testis, adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1625491_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of bwa. Gene sequence location is 2L:20066370..20073719.
