|Name||Odorant receptor 98b|
The gene Odorant receptor 98b is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Or98b (CG1867, FBgn0039582). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: olfactory receptor activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: sensory perception of smell. 4 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Olfactory receptor, Drosophila. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of extremely low expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the larval period, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1640437_at partially aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Or98b: 11 out of 13 probes fall into this exonic region. Gene sequence location is 3R:24177964..24179224.
