Rh5 begins to be expressed in larval photoreceptors at embryonic 16,17 and expression continues throughout the larval stages. Rh5 is expressed in 3-4 of the larval photoreceptors and the remaining photoreceptors express Rh6.
Rh5 expression is limited to a subset of the R8 photoreceptor cells. It was known previously that Rh3 is expressed in a subset of R7 photoreceptors cells. It was found here that there is a precise pairing of Rh3 and Rh5 expression within the R7 and R8 cells of individual ommatidia.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.

Rh5 is required in TrpA1-expressing neurons (located in the brain, ventral nerve cord and body well) for the normal thermal preference for 18[o]C seen in late third-instar larvae exposed to a temperature gradient.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene used in a cell-based RNAi assay to identify components or modifiers of the JAK/STAT pathway.
Shows particularly robust cycling of transcription in adult heads, as assessed by expression analysis using high density oligonucleotide arrays with probe generated during three 12-point time course experiments over the course of 6 days.
Rh5, a rhodopsin expressed in a subset of R8 photoreceptor cells, has been cloned and characterised.
