OR5D16

Official Full Name
olfactory receptor, family 5, subfamily D, member 16
Background
Olfactory receptors interact with odorant molecules in the nose, to initiate a neuronal response that triggers the perception of a smell. 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. The nomenclature assigned to the olfactory receptor genes and proteins for this organism is independent of other organisms.
Synonyms
OR5D16; olfactory receptor, family 5, subfamily D, member 16; olfactory receptor 5D16; Olfactory receptor family 5 subfamily D member 16; Olfactory receptor OR11-154; OR11 154; OR5DG_HUMAN; OR11-154
