|Name||Gustatory receptor 68a|
The gene Gustatory receptor 68a is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr68a (CG7303, FBgn0041231). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: male courtship behavior, tapping to detect pheromone. 3 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 no expression detected. Peak expression observed during early larval stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1632767_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr68a. Gene sequence location is 3L:11744405..11745574.
