opioid growth factor receptor
The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor for opioid growth factor (OGF), also known as (Met(5))-enkephalin. OGF;is a negative regulator of cell proliferation and tissue organization in a variety of processes. The encoded unbound;receptor for OGF has been localized to the outer nuclear envelope, where it binds OGF and is translocated into the;nucleus. The coding sequence of this gene contains a polymorphic region of 60 nt tandem imperfect repeat units.;Several transcripts containing between zero and eight repeat units have been reported.
