Summaries for ORM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ORM1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a key acute phase plasma protein. Because of its increase due to acute inflammation, this protein is classified as an acute-phase reactant. The specific function of this protein has not yet been determined; however, it may be involved in aspects of immunosuppression. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ORM1 Gene

ORM1 (Orosomucoid 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ORM1 include pediatric multiple sclerosis. An important paralog of this gene is ORM2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ORM1 Gene

  • Functions as transport protein in the blood stream. Binds various ligands in the interior of its beta-barrel domain. Also binds synthetic drugs and influences their distribution and availability in the body. Appears to function in modulating the activity of the immune system during the acute-phase reaction.
