The gene scarlet is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\st (CG4314, FBgn0003515). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: ATPase activity, coupled to transmembrane movement of substances. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: ommochrome biosynthetic process. 51 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: AAA+ ATPase domain; ABC transporter, conserved site; ABC transporter-like; ABC-2 type transporter; Pigment precursor permease. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed within 06-18 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult Malpighian tubules. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye, larval Malpighian tubules. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1641146_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of st. Gene sequence location is 3L:16490751..16493563.
