The gene deformed wings is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\dwg (CG2711, FBgn0000520). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein binding; DNA binding; chromatin insulator sequence binding. The biological processes in which it is involved are not known. 52 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 12 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; organ system; adult; adult segment; sense organ; region of integument; anterior vertical bristle; external compound sense organ; thoracic segment; anterior orbital bristle; pigment cell. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Zinc finger C2H2-type/integrase DNA-binding domain; Zinc finger, AD-type; 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 low expression. Peak expression observed within 00-12 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult ovary. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1634748_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of dwg. Gene sequence location is X:2621731..2624075.
