1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 149 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 149 kDa).
Is unsuitable for ICC/IF or IHC-P.
Play 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.
Widely expressed. Expressed in liver. Also expressed in small intestine, pancreas, kidney, lung, pancreas, spleen, heart, gall bladder, brain, testis, stomach and muscle.
Belongs to the patched family. Contains 1 SSD (sterol-sensing) domain.
Apical 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.
