Gene details (from Flybase) 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.
4 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: GPCR, rhodopsin-like superfamily; 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.
