The gene zipper is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\zip (CG15792, FBgn0265434). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: myosin light chain binding. There is experimental evidence for 21 unique biological process terms, many of which group under: single-organism developmental process; cellular component organization or biogenesis; localization; embryonic development via the syncytial blastoderm; actin filament-based process; cellular component movement; embryo development ending in birth or egg hatching; muscle cell differentiation; digestive tract development; regionalization. 52 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 46 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system; organ system subdivision; non-connected developing system; adult segment; portion of tissue; cytoplasmic part; hypodermal muscle of larval abdomen; multicellular structure; acellular anatomical structure; external compound sense organ; late extended germ band embryo. It has 9 annotated transcripts and 9 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: IQ motif, EF-hand binding site; Myosin head, motor domain; Myosin tail; Myosin, N-terminal, SH3-like. Gene sequence location is 2R:20878093..20899488.
