Gene: SCP2 (sterol carrier protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SCP2
Name: sterol carrier protein 2
CRRD ID: 733061
Description: Exhibits several functions, including anion binding activity; cholesterol binding activity; and phosphatidylinositol transfer activity. Involved in several processes, including inositol trisphosphate biosynthetic process; lipid hydroperoxide transport; and progesterone biosynthetic process. Localizes to nucleoplasm; peroxisome; and protein-containing complex. Biomarker of Zellweger syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DKFZp686C12188; DKFZp686D11188; NLTP; non-specific lipid-transfer protein; nonspecific lipid-transfer protein; NSL-TP; propanoyl-CoA C-acyltransferase; SCP-2; SCP-CHI; SCP-X; SCPX; sterol carrier protein X
