Gene: Apoe (apolipoprotein E) Mus musculus
Symbol: Apoe
Name: apolipoprotein E
Description: Exhibits several functions, including cholesterol transfer activity; heparan sulfate proteoglycan binding activity; and phosphatidylcholine-sterol O-acyltransferase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including lipid homeostasis; lipoprotein metabolic process; and plasma lipoprotein particle remodeling. Localizes to the glutamatergic synapse and low-density lipoprotein particle. Predicted to colocalize with the early endosome and microtubule. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); cerebrovascular disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); familial hyperlipidemia (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; liver and biliary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human APOE (apolipoprotein E).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
