The gene rhomboid-4 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\rho-4 (CG1697, FBgn0030318). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. It is reported to have molecular function: serine-type peptidase activity. An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: proteolysis. 11 alleles are reported. The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: wing. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Calcium-binding EF-hand; EF-Hand 1, calcium-binding site; EF-hand-like domain; Peptidase S54, rhomboid; Peptidase S54, rhomboid domain; Peptidase S54, rhomboid, metazoan. 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: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: larval central nervous system, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval/adult Malpighian tubules, larval/adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, larval carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1623692_s_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 3 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of rho-4. Gene sequence location is X:11493871..11500321.
