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.
