Summary: 7tm Chemosensory receptor
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
7tm Chemosensory receptor Provide feedback
This family includes a number of gustatory and odorant receptors mainly from insect species such as A. gambiae and D. melanogaster. 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 [1,2].

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 [PUBMED:14608037, PUBMED:12364795].

The members of this clan are families of various gustatory and odorant receptors. They are described as being seven-transmembrane receptors, and in fact all show characteristic regions of hydrophobicity on the alignment.
The clan contains the following 4 members:7tm_6 7tm_7 DUF267 Trehalose_recp
We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
