|Name||Gustatory receptor 98b|
The gene Gustatory receptor 98b is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Gr98b (CG31059, FBgn0046887). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: taste receptor activity. Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to be involved in the biological process: sensory perception of taste. 4 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 06-24 hour embryonic stages, during early larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in stages of adults of both sexes. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: No expression detected in any larval or adult organs/tissues. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1625372_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Gr98b. Gene sequence location is 3R:23368219..23369610.
