The gene orange is referred to in FlyBase by the symbol Dmel\or (CG3029, FBgn0003008). It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster. An electronic pipeline based on InterPro domains suggests that it has the molecular function: protein transporter activity. There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: compound eye pigmentation; ommochrome biosynthetic process. 17 alleles are reported. The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: mesothoracic tergum; photoreceptor cell pigment granule; pigment cell. It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide. Protein features are: AP complex, mu/sigma subunit; AP-3 complex subunit sigma; Adaptor protein complex, sigma subunit; Clathrin adaptor complex, small chain; Longin-like domain. Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of moderate expression. Peak expression observed within 00-18 hour embryonic stages, during late larval stages, at stages throughout the pupal period, in adult female stages. Summary of FlyAtlas Anatomical Expression Data: Expression at moderate levels in the following post-embryonic organs or tissues: adult head, adult eye, larval/adult central nervous system, adult crop, larval/adult midgut, larval/adult hindgut, larval/adult Malpighian tubules, adult heart, larval/adult fat body, larval/adult salivary gland, larval trachea, adult female reproductive system, adult male reproductive system, larval/adult carcass. Comments on Affy2 ProbeSet: ProbeSet 1634817_at completely aligns to an exonic region of the only FlyBase-annotated transcript isoform of or. Gene sequence location is 2R:19855465..19856466.
