Symbol Dmel\fd68A
Name forkhead domain 68A
Species Drosophila melanogaster
Annotation symbol CG11799
FlyBase ID FBgn0036134

The gene forkhead domain 68A is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\fd68A (CG11799, FBgn0036134). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. The biological processes in which it is involved are not known. 15 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has 8 annotated transcripts and 8 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Forkhead-associated (FHA) domain; SMAD/FHA domain; Transcription factor, fork head; Transcription factor, fork head, conserved site; Winged helix-turn-helix transcription repressor DNA-binding domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of moderate expression. Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Nearly all larval and adult tissues/organs expressed at moderate levels. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult brain. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval/adult Malpighian tubules, adult heart, adult fat body, larval/adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, adult male reproductive system, larval/adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1634587_s_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 5 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of fd68A. Gene sequence location is 3L:11107269..11113875.
