The gene sepia is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\se (CG6781, FBgn0086348). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: pyrimidodiazepine synthase activity; glutathione dehydrogenase (ascorbate) activity; transferase activity, transferring sulfur-containing groups; protein homodimerization activity; glutathione transferase activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: pteridine biosynthetic process; eye pigment biosynthetic process; glutathione metabolic process. 24 alleles are reported. The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: pigment cell. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Glutathione S-transferase, C-terminal-like; Glutathione S-transferase, N-terminal; Glutathione S-transferase, omega-class; Glutathione S-transferase/chloride channel, C-terminal; Thioredoxin-like fold. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1637801_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of se. Gene sequence location is 3L:8513652..8514589.
