We characterize the class of local martingales of the form $H(B_t,L_t)$ for a standard one-dimensional Brownian motion $B=(B_t)_{t\ge 0}$ and its local time at $0$, $L=(L_t)_{t\ge 0}$. The main result is closely related to work of J. Obloj, who studied the local martingales of the form $H(B_t,\ov B_t)$, where $\ov B_t = \sup_{0\le s\le t} B_s$.
