The gene laccase 2 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\laccase2 (CG42345, FBgn0259247). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: hydroquinone:oxygen oxidoreductase activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chitin-based cuticle development. 13 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: trichogen cell; mesothoracic tergum. It has 5 annotated transcripts and 5 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Cupredoxin; Multicopper oxidase, copper-binding site; Multicopper oxidase, type 1; Multicopper oxidase, type 2; Multicopper oxidase, type 3. 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 during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Two or more Affy2 ProbeSets identify exons of this gene. This is a summary of the tissue expression peaks exhibited in at least one of these ProbeSets. Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval trachea, larval carcass. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult crop, larval/adult hindgut. Gene sequence location is 2R:1301249..1343600.
