Sequence of this protein is as follows: MSLTKTERTI IVSMWAKIST QADTIGTETL ERLFLSHPQT KTYFPHFDLH PGSAQLRAHG SKVVAAVGDA VKSIDDIGGA L
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.
