GeneCards Summary for TAAR5 Gene
TAAR5 (Trace Amine Associated Receptor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and trimethylamine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is TAAR9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TAAR5 Gene
Olfactory receptor specific for trimethylamine, a trace amine. Also activated at lower level by dimethylethylamine. Trimethylamine is a bacterial metabolite found in some animal odors, and to humans it is a repulsive odor associated with bad breath and spoiled food. This receptor is probably mediated by the G(s)-class of G-proteins which activate adenylate cyclase.
