Background of Olfr480 antibody
The olfactory receptor proteins are members of a large family of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) arising from single coding-exon genes. Olfactory receptors share a 7-transmembrane domain structure with many neurotransmitter and hormone receptors and are responsible for the recognition and G protein-mediated transduction of odorant signals. The olfactory receptor gene family is the largest in the genome. Known ligands; HEPTANOL, HEXANOL FUNCTION: Probable odorant receptor, which recognizes only aliphatic alcohols, suggesting that it may convey a "woody" or "sweet" sour. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
