OSMotic avoidance abnormal family member (osm-9) (Caenorhabditis elegans) Identifiers Symbol OSM-9 Entrez 177117 Other data
The OSM-9 protein is required for some olfactory and osmotic stimuli as well as a mechanosensory response to nose touch. This protein encodes a protein with ankyrin repeats and is closely related in sequence to the mammalian TRPV ion channels. OSM-9 controls the biosynthesis of serotonin via regulation of the expression of the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase.
