  • FunctionInvolved in the intracellular trafficking of cholesterol. May play a role in vesicular trafficking in glia, a process that may be crucial for maintaining the structural and functional integrity of nerve terminals.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in NPC1 are the cause of Niemann-Pick disease type C1 (NPDC1) [MIM:257220]. A lysosomal storage disorder that affects the viscera and the central nervous system. It is due to defective intracellular processing and transport of low-density lipoprotein derived cholesterol. It causes accumulation of cholesterol in lysosomes, with delayed induction of cholesterol homeostatic reactions. Niemann-Pick disease type C1 has a highly variable clinical phenotype. Clinical features include variable hepatosplenomegaly and severe progressive neurological dysfunction such as ataxia, dystonia and dementia. The age of onset can vary from infancy to late adulthood. An allelic variant of Niemann-Pick disease type C1 is found in people with Nova Scotia ancestry. Patients with the Nova Scotian clinical variant are less severely affected.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the patched family.
    Contains 1 SSD (sterol-sensing) domain.
  • DomainA cysteine-rich N-terminal domain and a C-terminal domain containing a di-leucine motif necessary for lysosomal targeting are critical for mobilization of cholesterol from lysosomes.
  • Post-translational
  • Cellular localizationLate endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane.
