Gene: Npc1 (NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Npc1
Name: NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 1
CRRD ID: 628693
Description: Predicted to have cholesterol binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of cell death and response to cadmium ion. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including integral component of lysosomal membrane; membrane raft; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Niemann-Pick disease type C1. Orthologous to human NPC1 (NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 1); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acetamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Cdig2; Niemann-Pick disease, type C1; SLC66A1; solute carrier family 66 member 1
