Gene: Olr59 (olfactory receptor 59) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Olr59
Name: olfactory receptor 59
Description: Predicted to have olfactory receptor activity and steroid hormone receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipid; melanocyte proliferation; and regulation of blood pressure. Predicted to localize to early endosome membrane and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human OR51E2 (olfactory receptor family 51 subfamily E member 2); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: G-protein coupled receptor RA1c; olfactory receptor 51E2; olfactory receptor 78; Olfr78; Or51e2; RA1c
