The gene Rhodopsin 6 is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\Rh6 (CG5192, FBgn0019940). 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; sensory perception of sound; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter. 9 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 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 1640642_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of Rh6. Gene sequence location is 3R:11308880..11310421.
