Gene: OR2T8 (olfactory receptor family 2 subfamily T member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: OR2T8
Name: olfactory receptor family 2 subfamily T member 8
Description: Predicted to have G protein-coupled receptor activity and 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 plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: olfactory receptor 2T8; olfactory receptor, family 2, subfamily T, member 8 pseudogene; OR2T8P
