Summaries for STARD3NL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STARD3NL Gene

  • This gene encodes a late-endosomal protein that contains a conserved MENTAL (MLN64 N-terminal) domain. The encoded protein binds cholesterol molecules and may play a role in endosomal cholesterol transport through interactions with metastatic lymph node protein 64 (MLN64). [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for STARD3NL Gene

STARD3NL (STARD3 N-Terminal Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cholesterol and Sphingolipids transport / Distribution to the intracellular membrane compartments (normal and CF). An important paralog of this gene is STAR.
