The gene cardinal is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\cd (CG6969, FBgn0263986). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: peroxidase activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: negative regulation of gene silencing by RNA; ommochrome biosynthetic process. 27 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: eye; Malpighian tubule; pigment cell. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Haem peroxidase; Haem peroxidase, animal; Haem peroxidase, animal, subgroup. Gene sequence location is 3R:18520681..18523712.
