  • Function
    Binds cholesterol and a range of oxysterols. Cholesterol binding promotes the formation of a complex with PP2A and a tyrosine phosphatase which dephosphorylate ERK1/2, whereas 25-hydroxycholesterol causes its disassembly. Regulates cholesterol efflux by decreasing ABCA1 stability.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the OSBP family.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
  • Domain
    The PH and Ala/Gly-rich domains control cholesterol binding without affecting 25-hydroxycholesterol binding.
    The second coiled-coil domain is required for interaction with the tyrosine phosphatase.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane. When bound to oxysterols, translocates to the periphery of Golgi membranes.
  • Information by UniProt
