|Name||Gustatory receptor 66a|
The gene Gustatory receptor 66a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr66a (CG7189, FBgn0035870). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. It is reported to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: chemosensory behavior; response to caffeine; response to insecticide. 7 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 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: Little or no expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1639129_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr66a. Gene sequence location is 3L:8298436..8300080.
