Entrez Gene summary for NPC1L1 Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a multi-pass membrane protein. It contains a conserved N-terminal Niemann-Pick
C1 (NPC1) domain and a putative sterol-sensing domain (SSD) which includes a YQRL motif functioning as a plasma
membrane to trans-Golgi network transport signal in other proteins. This protein takes up free cholesterol into
cells through vesicular endocytosis and plays a critical role in the absorption of intestinal cholesterol. It
also has the ability to transport alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E). The drug ezetimibe targets this protein and
inhibits the absorption of intestinal cholesterol and alpha-tocopherol. In addition, this protein may play a
critical role in regulating lipid metabolism. Polymorphic variations in this gene are associated with plasma
total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels and coronary heart disease (CHD) risk.
Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided by
RefSeq, Oct 2009)

GeneCards Summary for NPC1L1 Gene:
NPC1L1 (NPC1-like 1) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with NPC1L1 include niemann-pick disease, and pick's disease. GO annotations related to this gene include drug binding and hedgehog receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is PTCH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: NPCL1_HUMAN, Q9UHC9
Function: Plays 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 absorption. 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. Acts as a negative regulator of NPC2 and down-regulates its expression and secretion by
inhibiting its maturation and accelerating its degradation
