|Name||polar granule component|
The gene polar granule component is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\pgc (CG32885, FBgn0016053). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Its molecular function is unknown. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: pole cell development; pole cell migration; germ cell development; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent. 16 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: pole cell; mesothoracic tergum; gonad. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed within 00-06 hour embryonic stages, in adult female stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No FlyAtlas data available because no Affy2 ProbeSet aligns to an exon of pgc. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: No relevant information because no Affy2 ProbeSet aligns to an exon of pgc. Gene sequence location is 2R:18217658..18220320.
