Summaries for SCARF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SCARF2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is similar to SCARF1/SREC-I, a scavenger receptor protein that mediates the binding and degradation of acetylated low density lipoprotein (Ac-LDL). This protein has only little activity of internalizing modified low density lipoproteins (LDL), but it can interact with SCARF1 through its extracellular domain. The association of this protein with SCARF1 is suppressed by the presence of scavenger ligands. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.

GeneCards Summary for SCARF2 Gene

SCARF2 (Scavenger Receptor Class F Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SCARF2 include Van Den Ende-Gupta Syndrome and Van Den Ende-Gupta Sndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include scavenger receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCARF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCARF2 Gene

  • Probable adhesion protein, which mediates homophilic and heterophilic interactions. In contrast to SCARF1, it poorly mediates the binding and degradation of acetylated low density lipoprotein (Ac-LDL) (By similarity).
