|Name||Gustatory receptor 43a|
The gene Gustatory receptor 43a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr43a (CG1712, FBgn0041243). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: sensory perception of taste. 2 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 extremely low expression. Peak expression observed at stages throughout embryogenesis, 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 1629589_at completely aligns to an exonic region common to each of the 2 FlyBase-annotated transcript isoforms of Gr43a. Gene sequence location is 2R:3278374..3280666.
