No phenotype-genotype correlation could be drawn with respect to different mutations, and, moreover, phenotypes varied within single families. GNAL encodes the stimulatory α-subunit, Gαolf, first identified as a guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein) that mediates odorant signaling in the olfactory epithelium [49]. G proteins are heterodimers that consist of α-, β-, and γ-subunits and usually serve as a molecular link between transmembrane receptor and downstream effector molecules. Heterodimer containing Gαolf associates with dopamine type 1 receptors, and GNAL mutations significantly impair the ability of Gαolf to couple with β- and γ-subunits.
