Gene: Scarb2 (scavenger receptor class B, member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Scarb2
Name: scavenger receptor class B, member 2
CRRD ID: 621882
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including chaperone binding activity; cholesterol binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of neuron projection development. Predicted to localize to endocytic vesicle membrane; lysosome; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in progressive myoclonus epilepsy 4. Orthologous to human SCARB2 (scavenger receptor class B member 2); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 85 kDa lysosomal membrane sialoglycoprotein; CD36 antigen (collagen type I receptor, thrombospondin receptor)-like 2; CD36 antigen-like 2; Cd36l2; LGP85; LIMP II; LimpII; lysosome membrane protein 2; lysosome membrane protein II; scavenger receptor class B member 2
