The gene CENP-meta is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\cmet (CG6392, FBgn0040232). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: plus-end-directed microtubule motor activity; microtubule motor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: mitotic metaphase plate congression; mitotic spindle organization; cell cycle; neurogenesis. 10 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: spindle microtubule; eye; trichogen cell; mitotic cell cycle; condensed nuclear chromosome; spindle pole; spermatocyte; astral microtubule. It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Kinesin, motor domain; Kinesin, motor region, conserved site; Spectrin/alpha-actinin. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of very low expression. Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval central nervous system, adult ovary, adult testis. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1624191_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of cmet. Gene sequence location is 2L:11261026..11269002.
