The gene disconnected is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\disco (CG9908, FBgn0000459). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: DNA binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: brain development; eclosion rhythm; locomotor rhythm; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter. 25 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 24 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; nervous system; external compound sense organ; thoracic segment; cuticle; presumptive embryonic/larval nervous system; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; multi-cell-component structure; peripheral nervous system. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Zinc finger, C2H2; Zinc finger, C2H2-like. 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 06-12 hour embryonic stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, larval central nervous system. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1639940_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of disco. Gene sequence location is X:16104631..16110779.
