Summaries for SCAP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SCAP Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with a sterol sensing domain (SSD) and seven WD domains. In the presence of cholesterol, this protein binds to sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) and mediates their transport from the ER to the Golgi. The SREBPs are then proteolytically cleaved and regulate sterol biosynthesis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

GeneCards Summary for SCAP Gene

SCAP (SREBF Chaperone) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF). GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and cholesterol binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCAP Gene

  • Escort protein required for cholesterol as well as lipid homeostasis. Regulates export of the SCAP/SREBF complex from the ER upon low cholesterol. Formation of a ternary complex with INSIG at high sterol concentrations leads to masking of an ER-export signal in SCAP and retention of the complex in the ER. Low sterol concentrations trigger release of INSIG, a conformational change in the SSC domain of SCAP, unmasking of the ER export signal, recruitment into COPII-coated vesicles, transport to the Golgi complex, proteolytic cleavage of SREBF in the Golgi, release of the transcription factor fragment of SREBF from the membrane, its import into the nucleus and up-regulation of LDLR, INSIG1 and the mevalonate pathway (By similarity).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Membrane region forms a homotetramer. Forms a stable complex with SREBF1/SREBP1 or SREBF2/SREBP2 through its C-terminal cytoplasmic domain. Forms a ternary complex with INSIG1 or INSIG2 through its transmembrane domains at high sterol concentrations. Interacts with the SEC23/SEC24 complex in a SAR1-GTP-dependent manner through an ER export signal in its third cytoplasmic loop. Binds cholesterol through its SSC domain (By similarity). Component of SCAP/SREBP complex composed of SREBF2, SCAP and RNF139; the complex hampers the interaction between SCAP and SEC24B, thereby reducing SREBF2 proteolytic processing. Interacts with RNF139; the interaction inhibits the interaction of SCAP with SEC24B and hampering the ER to Golgi transport of the SCAP/SREBP complex.
