General annotation (Comments)

Function

Vitamin E binding protein. May transport vitamin E in body fluids under conditions where the lipoprotein system is not sufficient. May be involved in the regulation and transport of vitamin E at the blood-brain barrier By similarity.

Subcellular location

Secreted.

Post-translational modification

N-glycosylated; more than 90% of the glycans are sialylated By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the ALB/AFP/VDB family.

Contains 3 albumin domains.
