Target

  • FunctionPlay a major role in cholesterol homeostasis. Is critical for the uptake of cholesterol across the plasma membrane of the intestinal enterocyte. Is the direct molecular target of ezetimibe, a drug that inhibits cholesterol absorbtion. Lack of activity leads to multiple lipid transport defects. The protein may have a function in the transport of multiple lipids and their homeostasis, and may play a critical role in regulating lipid metabolism.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Expressed in liver. Also expressed in small intestine, pancreas, kidney, lung, pancreas, spleen, heart, gall bladder, brain, testis, stomach and muscle.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the patched family.
    Contains 1 SSD (sterol-sensing) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Highly glycosylated.
  • Cellular localizationApical cell membrane. Cell membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Subfractionation of brush border membranes from proximal enterocytes suggests considerable association with the apical membrane fraction. Exists as a predominantly cell surface membrane expressed protein (By similarity). According to PubMed:15671032, localizes in a subcellular vesicular compartment rich in RAB5.
