CG1028: The gene Antennapedia is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Antp (CG1028, FBgn0260642). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sequence-specific DNA binding; RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity; DNA binding. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: muscle cell fate specification; specification of segmental identity, thorax; heart development; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; specification of segmental identity, antennal segment; anterior/posterior axis specification; neuroblast development; lymph gland development. 174 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with 66 unique terms, many of which group under: organ system subdivision; adult segment; organ system; thoracic segment; humeral trabecule; imaginal precursor; cephalopharyngeal skeleton; external compound sense organ; non-connected developing system; embryonic thoracic segment. It has 11 annotated transcripts and 11 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: Homeobox protein, antennapedia type; Homeobox protein, antennapedia type, conserved site; Homeobox, conserved site; Homeodomain; Homeodomain, metazoa; Homeodomain-like. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of very low expression. Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis.
