General annotation (Comments)

Function

Probable methyltransferase.

Subunit structure

Interacts with Psn. Ref.4

Tissue specificity

Widely expressed. Expressed in ovaries, head, thorax and abdomen of adult flies, and in the CNS of third instar larvae. Isoform 2 is predominantly expressed in larvae and in adult tissues that have been tested. Ref.4

Developmental stage

Expressed throughout embryogenesis, as well as in larvae and adults.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the methyltransferase superfamily. METL family.

Ontologies

Alternative products

This entry describes 3 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. [Align] [Select]
Isoform 1 (identifier: Q86BS6-1)

Also known as: B;

This isoform has been chosen as the 'canonical' sequence. All positional information in this entry refers to it. This is also the sequence that appears in the downloadable versions of the entry.
Isoform 2 (identifier: Q86BS6-2)

Also known as: Metl-a;

The sequence of this isoform differs from the canonical sequence as follows:
     1-79: Missing.
Isoform 3 (identifier: Q86BS6-3)

Also known as: A;

The sequence of this isoform differs from the canonical sequence as follows:
     1-52: MLTTSSSTML...LTDAREVFEF → MSDNPAAENEKRPQFGTRLLTDADDVFKH
Note: No experimental confirmation available.
