Summaries for APOC1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for APOC1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the apolipoprotein C1 family. This gene is expressed primarily in the liver, and it is activated when monocytes differentiate into macrophages. The encoded protein plays a central role in high density lipoprotein (HDL) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) metabolism. This protein has also been shown to inhibit cholesteryl ester transfer protein in plasma. A pseudogene of this gene is located 4 kb downstream in the same orientation, on the same chromosome. This gene is mapped to chromosome 19, where it resides within a apolipoprotein gene cluster. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]

GeneCards Summary for APOC1 Gene

APOC1 (Apolipoprotein C1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with APOC1 include hepatitis c virus and alzheimer disease. Among its related pathways are Statin Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatidylcholine binding and phospholipase inhibitor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for APOC1 Gene

  • Inhibitor of lipoprotein binding to the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor, LDL receptor-related protein, and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) receptor. Associates with high density lipoproteins (HDL) and the triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins in the plasma and makes up about 10% of the protein of the VLDL and 2% of that of HDL. Appears to interfere directly with fatty acid uptake and is also the major plasma inhibitor of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP). Binds free fatty acids and reduces their intracellular esterification. Modulates the interaction of APOE with beta-migrating VLDL and inhibits binding of beta-VLDL to the LDL receptor-related protein.

    No Data Available
    Miscellaneous:
    • Apolipoprotein C-I is present in acidic (APOC1A) and basic (APOC1B) forms in P.paniscus, P.abelii and P.troglodytes and perhaps also in baboons and macaques. The two genes for ApoC-I arose through a duplication process that occurred after the divergence of New World monkeys from the human lineage. In human, the acidic form has become a pseudogene sometime between the divergence of bonobos and chimpanzees from the human lineage and the appearance of the Denisovans. Pseudogenization resulted when the codon for the penultimate amino acid in the signal sequence was changed to a stop codon.
