7TM chemoreceptor (IPR013604)

Short name: 7TM_chemorcpt

Family relationships



This family includes a number of gustatory and odorant receptors mainly from insect species such as Anopheles gambiae (African malaria mosquito) and Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit fly). They are classified as G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), or seven-transmembrane receptors. They show high sequence divergence, consistent with an ancient origin for the family [PMID: 14608037, PMID: 12364795].
