LMBR1-like membrane protein (IPR006876)

Short name: LMBR1-like_membr_prot

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This group of uncharacterised proteins have a conserved C-terminal region which is found in LMBR1 and in the lipocalin-1 receptor. LMBR1 was thought to play a role in preaxial polydactyly, but recent evidence now suggests this not to be the case [PMID: 12032320]. Vertebrate members of this family may play a role in limb development [PMID: 11090342]. A member of this family has been shown to be a lipocalin membrane receptor [PMID: 11287427].
