The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 20 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa.
Use a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml.
FunctionReceptor for different ligands such as phospholipids, cholesterol ester, lipoproteins, phosphatidylserine and apoptotic cells. Probable receptor for HDL, located in particular region of the plasma membrane, called caveolae. Facilitates the flux of free and esterified cholesterol between the cell surface and extracellular donors and acceptors, such as HDL and to a lesser extent, apoB-containing lipoproteins and modified lipoproteins. Probably involved in the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, via its phosphatidylserine binding activity. Receptor for hepatitis C virus glycoprotein E2. Binding between SCARB1 and E2 was found to be independent of the genotype of the viral isolate. Plays an important role in the uptake of HDL cholesteryl ester.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the CD36 family.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Membrane > caveola. Predominantly localized to cholesterol and sphingomyelin-enriched domains within the plasma membrane, called caveolae.
