|Name||Gustatory receptor 59c|
The gene Gustatory receptor 59c is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr59c (CG30186, FBgn0041235). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: bitter taste receptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: sensory perception of bitter taste. 2 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: I-type sensilla I8; I-type sensilla I10; S-type sensilla S5; S-type sensilla S6; I-type sensilla I5; I-type sensilla I9. 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 00-06 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, during late pupal stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1624612_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr59c. Gene sequence location is 2R:18990000..18991256.
