Previous GeneCards Identifiers for STAB1 Gene
This gene encodes a large, transmembrane receptor protein which may function in angiogenesis, lymphocyte homing, cell adhesion, or receptor scavenging. The protein contains 7 fasciclin, 16 epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like, and 2 laminin-type EGF-like domains as well as a C-type lectin-like hyaluronan-binding Link module. The protein is primarily expressed on sinusoidal endothelial cells of liver, spleen, and lymph node. The receptor has been shown to endocytose ligands such as low density lipoprotein, Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and advanced glycosylation end products. Supporting its possible role as a scavenger receptor, the protein rapidly cycles between the plasma membrane and early endosomes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for STAB1 Gene
STAB1 (Stabilin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STAB1 include Auricular Cancer and Histiocytosis. Among its related pathways are Binding and Uptake of Ligands by Scavenger Receptors and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein disulfide oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is STAB2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for STAB1 Gene
Acts as a scavenger receptor for acetylated low density lipoprotein. Binds to both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and may play a role in defense against bacterial infection. When inhibited in endothelial tube formation assays, there is a marked decrease in cell-cell interactions, suggesting a role in angiogenesis. Involved in the delivery of newly synthesized CHID1/SI-CLP from the biosynthetic compartment to the endosomal/lysosomal system.
