GeneID: 137


Common Name: OLFM5P Type: Pseudogene
Chromosome: 11 (NC_000011.10) Locus: N/A
HUGO Symbol: OLFM5P Full Name: olfactomedin family member 5, pseudogene
Exons: N/A Introns: N/A

OLFM5P is classified as a pseudogene and member of the family of olfactomedins. The olfactomedin domain-containing proteins appear to facilitate protein-protein interactions, sometimes in conjuction with extracellular matrix components, and are proposed to play essential roles in development and cell differentiation. Members of this family are implicated in the process of olfaction, neurosecretion and neural development. Polymorphisms in the OLFM5P gene associated with HbF levels in sickle cell patients.
