Family

Caenorhabditis elegans ly-6-related (IPR010558)

Short name: Ly-6-related

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several Caenorhabditis elegans specific ly-6-related HOT and ODR proteins. These proteins are involved in the olfactory system. Odr-2 mutants are known to be defective in the ability to chemotax to odorants that are recognised by the two AWC olfactory neurons. Odr-2 encodes a membrane-associated protein related to the Ly-6 superfamily of GPI-linked signalling proteins [PMID: 11139503].
