Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
There is experimental evidence that it has the molecular function: GTPase activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: rhodopsin mediated signaling pathway; activation of phospholipase C activity; phototransduction; negative regulation of compound eye retinal cell programmed cell death; sensory perception of smell; thermotaxis; mucosal immune response; axon midline choice point recognition.
25 alleles are reported.
The phenotypes of these alleles are annotated with: photoreceptor; rhabdomere; photoreceptor cell; eye photoreceptor cell; pCC neuron; wing; adult olfactory receptor neuron Or59b.
It has 8 annotated transcripts and 8 annotated polypeptides.
Protein features are: G protein alpha subunit, helical insertion; G-protein alpha subunit, group Q; Guanine nucleotide binding protein (G-protein), alpha subunit.
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 stages of adults of both sexes.
