[Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the IgLON subfamily in the immunoglobulin protein superfamily. The encoded protein is localized in the plasma membrane and may have an accessory role in opioid receptor function. This gene has an ortholog in rat and bovine. The opioid binding-cell adhesion molecule encoded by the rat gene binds opioid alkaloids in the presence of acidic lipids, exhibits selectivity for mu ligands and acts as a GPI-anchored protein. Since the encoded protein is highly conserved in species during evolution, it may have a fundamental role in mammalian systems. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]Summary text for additional MGI annotations
Annotations directly to molecular function, biological process, and cellular component for the gene Opcml indicate that MGI curators have found no experimental data [literature] to support further annotation to these categories at this time.
