AceView synopsis, each blue text links to tables and details
According to AceView, this gene is expressed at high level, 4.0 times the average gene in this release, at all stages of development [Kohara cDNAs]. The expression profile for the gene, derived from the proportion of animals at each stage in each Kohara library is: embryos 16%, L1 or L2 larvae 45%, L3 to adult (including dauer) 39%. See the in situ hybridization pattern in Kohara NextDB. The sequence of this gene is defined by 21 cDNA clones and 31 elements defined by RNA-seq, some from l1 (seen 3 times), l2 (3), embryo (2), mixed (2). We annotate structural defects or features in 25 cDNA clones.
The gene contains 3 distinct gt-ag introns. Transcription produces one mRNA. Variant a is transpliced to SL2, SL5, SL9, SL1, SL3, SL4, SL7. 573 bp of this gene are antisense to spliced gene set-31, raising the possibility of regulated alternate expression.
Function: There is one article specifically referring to this gene in PubMed. Functionally, the gene has been proposed to participate in a process (metabolism). Proteins are expected to have molecular function (oxidoreductase activity).
The spliced mRNA putatively encodes a good protein, containing short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase SDR domain [Pfam].

Alternative mRNAs are shown aligned from 5' to 3' on a virtual genome where introns have been shrunk to a minimal length. Exon size is proportional to length, intron height reflects the number of cDNAs supporting each intron, the small numbers show the support of the introns in deep sequencing (with details in mouse-over) . Introns of the same color are identical, of different colors are different. 'Good proteins' are pink, partial or not-good proteins are yellow, uORFs are green. 5' cap or3' poly A flags show completeness of the transcript.
