|Name||forkhead domain 68A|
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.
