|Name||Gustatory receptor 21a|
The gene Gustatory receptor 21a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr21a (CG13948, FBgn0041250). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: response to carbon dioxide; detection of carbon dioxide. 9 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has 2 annotated transcripts and 2 annotated polypeptides. Protein features are: 7TM chemoreceptor. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very low expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Little or no expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1631563_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr21a. Gene sequence location is 2L:780482..782885.
