|Name||Gustatory receptor 59b|
The gene Gustatory receptor 59b is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr59b (CG30191, FBgn0045482). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it is involved in the biological process: sensory perception of taste. 2 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: 7TM chemoreceptor. 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, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages, in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1633708_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr59b. Gene sequence location is 2R:18969726..18970889.
