The gene fat-spondin is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\fat-spondin (CG6953, FBgn0026721). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. The biological processes in which it is involved are not known. 7 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Proteinase inhibitor I2, Kunitz metazoa; Proteinase inhibitor I2, Kunitz, conserved site; Reeler domain; Spondin, N-terminal; Thrombospondin, type 1 repeat. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of very low expression. Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during early pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, adult heart, larval/adult fat body, adult spermathecae, adult carcass. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult central nervous system. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1629572_a_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of fat-spondin. Gene sequence location is 2R:12941507..12946804.
