The gene echinus is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\ec (CG2904, FBgn0000542). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: protein phosphatase 1 binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: compound eye retinal cell programmed cell death; ommatidial rotation; compound eye morphogenesis. 43 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: eye; adult thorax; dorsocentral bristle; primary pigment cell; adult abdomen; posterior notopleural bristle; cone cell; wing; ommatidium. It has 3 annotated transcripts and 3 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Peptidase C19, ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 2. 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 at stages throughout embryogenesis, at stages throughout the pupal period. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Gene sequence location is X:3705684..3751658.
