The gene Rhodopsin 2 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Rh2 (CG16740, FBgn0003248). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: G-protein coupled photoreceptor activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: phototransduction. 5 alleles are reported. No phenotypic data is available. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: G protein-coupled receptor, rhodopsin-like; GPCR, rhodopsin-like, 7TM; Opsin; Opsin RH1/RH2. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderate expression to a trough of no expression detected. Peak expression observed during late pupal stages, in stages of adults of both sexes. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult brain. Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult eye. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1633797_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Rh2. Gene sequence location is 3R:14725145..14726741.
