Previous GeneCards Identifiers for OR2J3 Gene
This gene encodes a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that functions as an olfactory receptor. Olfactory receptors interact with odorant molecules in the nose to initiate a neuronal response that triggers the perception of a smell. The protein encoded by this gene responds to cis-3-hexen-1-ol, which is released by wounded plants, including cut grass. This gene is situated in a cluster of similar olfactory-receptor coding genes on chromosome 6. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
