Or157 odorant receptor 157 [Nasonia vitripennis (jewel wasp)]
|Entrez Gene ID
||odorant receptor 157
||Nasonia vitripennis (jewel wasp)
||The insect gustatory and odorant receptors are
chemoreceptors that interact with small molecules in sensory organs
and trigger the perception of a taste or smell. The gustatory and
odorant receptors are members of a large family of 7-transmembrane
domain proteins that function as ligand-gated ion channels and may
also signal via G-proteins and second messengers. The chemoreceptor
gene family is the largest in the genome. The nomenclature assigned
to the chemoreceptor genes and proteins for this organism is
independent of other organisms. [provided by RefSeq].
