Gene: Olr68 (olfactory receptor 68) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Olr68
Name: olfactory receptor 68
Description: Predicted to have olfactory receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway and detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of smell. Predicted to localize to the plasma membrane. Orthologous to human OR51A7 (olfactory receptor family 51 subfamily A member 7); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; dextran sulfate (ortholog); titanium dioxide (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: olfactory receptor gene Olr68; olfactory receptor Olr68; ratchr1-160844789-160845757_ORF
