Summaries for OSBPL7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OSBPL7 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. Two transcript variants encoding the same isoform have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
