From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that functions as an olfactory receptor. Olfactory receptors interact with odorant molecules in the nose to initiate a neuronal response that triggers the perception of a smell. The protein encoded by this gene responds to cis-3-hexen-1-ol, which is released by wounded plants, including cut grass. This gene is situated in a cluster of similar olfactory-receptor coding genes on chromosome 6. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

From UniProt:

Odorant receptor involved in the detection of the flavor compound cis-3-hexen-1-ol (C3HEX), a compound typically described as 'green grassy' or the smell of 'cut grass'.
