Data from: Copy number variation and expression analysis reveals a nonorthologous pinta gene family member involved in butterfly vision

Aide Macias-Muñoz, Kyle J. McCulloch & Adriana D. Briscoe
Vertebrate (CRALBP) and Drosophila (PINTA) proteins with a CRAL-TRIO domain transport retinal-based chromophores that bind to opsin proteins and are necessary for phototransduction. The CRAL-TRIO domain gene family is composed of genes that encode proteins with a common N-terminal structural domain. While there is an expansion of this gene family in Lepidoptera, there is no lepidopteran ortholog of pinta. Further, the function of these genes in lepidopterans has not yet been established. Here we explored...
