Lipocalin 1 (protein migrating faster than albumin, tear prealbumin)
Lipocalin 1 like 2
Von Ebner gland protein
FunctionCould play a role in taste reception. Could be necessary for the concentration and delivery of sapid molecules in the gustatory system. Can bind various ligands, with chemical structures ranging from lipids and retinoids to the macrocyclic antibiotic rifampicin and even to microbial siderophores. Exhibits an extremely wide ligand pocket.
Tissue specificityMainly expressed in lachrymal and salivary glands. Also expressed in the prostate.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
