ⓘ Olfactomedin 1

Olfactomedin 1, also known as noelin 1 or pancortin, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the OLFM1 gene. The name noelin stands for "neuronal olfactomedin-related endoplasmic reticulum-localized 1".

This gene product shares extensive sequence similarity with the neuronal olfactomedin-related rat ER localized protein. Although the exact function of the encoded protein is not known, its many expressions in the brain suggests that it may have an important role in the nervous tissue. Several alternative spliced transcripts encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
