The gene dusky is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\dy (CG9355, FBgn0004511). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: structural constituent of chitin-based cuticle. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: imaginal disc-derived wing morphogenesis; cell morphogenesis. 30 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: antenna; chaeta; wing; microchaeta. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Zona pellucida domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Little or no expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1633291_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of dy. Gene sequence location is X:11663806..11672709.
