The gene Rhodopsin 4 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Rh4 (CG9668, FBgn0003250). 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, UV. 13 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 RH3/RH4. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of very high expression to a trough of extremely low expression. Peak expression observed in adult male stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at high levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1626251_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Rh4. Gene sequence location is 3L:16845627..16855617.
