Summaries for STARD3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STARD3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a subfamily of lipid trafficking proteins that are characterized by a C-terminal steroidogenic acute regulatory domain and an N-terminal metastatic lymph node 64 domain. The encoded protein localizes to the membranes of late endosomes and may be involved in exporting cholesterol. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for STARD3 Gene

STARD3 (StAR-Related Lipid Transfer (START) Domain Containing 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cholesterol and Sphingolipids transport / Distribution to the intracellular membrane compartments (normal and CF). GO annotations related to this gene include cholesterol binding and cholesterol transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is STAR.
