This gene encodes a member of the IgLON subfamily in theimmunoglobulin protein superfamily. The encoded protein islocalized in the plasma membrane and may have an accessory role inopioid receptor function. This gene has an ortholog in rat andbovine. The opioid binding-cell adhesion molecule encoded by therat gene binds opioid alkaloids in the presence of acidic lipids,exhibits selectivity for mu ligands and acts as a GPI-anchoredprotein. Since the encoded protein is highly conserved in speciesduring evolution, it may have a fundamental role in mammaliansystems. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms havebeen found for this gene.
