Vomeromodulin: (Biological Classification > Speed of Evolution > High > RefOG010) - Vomeromodulin, a glycoprotein, which is synthesized on lateral nasal gland, is proposed to be a pheromone transporter (Khew-Goodall et al, 1991). The functional role of vomeromodulin as pherormonal signal justifies the fast-evolution of the family (the MeanID score of ROG is 0.5, while the automated predicted orthologous group in eggNOG has a MeanID equals to 0.273).
