The gene masquerade is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\mas (CG15002, FBgn0011653). 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 activity. An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: proteolysis. 11 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: aCC neuron; commissure; ventral acute muscle; peripheral nervous system; longitudinal connective; lateral oblique muscle; pCC neuron; lateral transverse muscle; ventral longitudinal muscle. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Peptidase S1; Peptidase S1, trypsin family, active site; Peptidase S1A, chymotrypsin-type; Trypsin-like cysteine/serine peptidase domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of high expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed within 12-18 embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Little or no expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1639190_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of mas. Gene sequence location is 3L:4161666..4167464.
