Olfactory receptor, family 1, subfamily B, member 1

OR1B1, olfactory receptor 1B1
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.

Papers on OR1B1
Common null variant, Arg192Stop, in a G-protein coupled receptor, olfactory receptor 1B1, associated with decreased serum cholinesterase activity.
Kawata et al., Yamagata, Japan. In Hepatol Res, 2008
CONCLUSION: These results suggested that the null-allele of OR1B1 might affect metabolism of serum cholinesterase in carriers of this nSNP.
