The gene sidestep is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\side (CG31062, FBgn0016061). 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: motor neuron axon guidance. 17 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 15 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; hypodermal muscle of larval abdomen; larval abdominal segment; embryonic/larval neuron; organ system subdivision; peripheral nervous system; A1-7 longitudinal muscle; A1-7 ventral longitudinal muscle 3; A1-7 dorsal oblique muscle 2; A1-7 dorsal acute muscle 2. It has 4 annotated transcripts and 4 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: CD80-like, immunoglobulin C2-set; Fibronectin, type III; Immunoglobulin V-set; Immunoglobulin subtype; Immunoglobulin subtype 2; Immunoglobulin-like domain; Immunoglobulin-like fold. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic 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 1623547_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of side. Gene sequence location is 3R:23200810..23263204.
