|Name||Gustatory receptor 64a|
The gene Gustatory receptor 64a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr64a (CG32261, FBgn0045479). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: sweet taste receptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: detection of maltose stimulus; detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of taste; detection of sucrose stimulus; proboscis extension reflex; sensory perception of sweet taste; detection of glucose. 7 alleles are reported. The phenotype of these alleles is annotated with: large labellar taste bristle. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: Gustatory receptor. 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 18-24 hour embryonic stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, 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 1638399_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr64a. Gene sequence location is 3L:4026769..4028600.
