Previous GeneCards Identifiers for OSBPL10 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the oxysterol-binding protein (OSBP) family, a group of intracellular lipid receptors. Like most members, the encoded protein contains an N-terminal pleckstrin homology domain and a highly conserved C-terminal OSBP-like sterol-binding domain. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OSBPL10 Gene
Probable lipid transporter involved in lipid countertransport between the endoplasmic reticulum and the plasma membrane. Its ability to bind phosphatidylserine, suggests that it specifically exchanges phosphatidylserine with phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P), delivering phosphatidylserine to the plasma membrane in exchange for PI4P (PubMed:23934110) (Probable). Plays a role in negative regulation of lipid biosynthesis (PubMed:19554302). Negatively regulates APOB secretion from hepatocytes (PubMed:19554302, PubMed:22906437). Binds cholesterol and acidic phospholipids (PubMed:22906437). Also binds 25-hydroxycholesterol (PubMed:17428193). Binds phosphatidylserine (PubMed:23934110).
