Summaries for OR52B4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OR52B4 Gene

  • 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. This olfactory receptor gene is a segregating pseudogene, where some individuals have an allele that encodes a functional olfactory receptor, while other individuals have an allele encoding a protein that is predicted to be non-functional.

Variants for OR52B4 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OR52B4 Gene

A stop codon at position Ala-40 in the gene coding for this protein is responsible for functional diversity thus producing a pseudogene. The stop codon is more frequent in non-Africans than in African-Americans.
