Functioni

Assists in the loading of diacylglycerol, generated from triacylglycerol stores in the fat body through the action of adipokinetic hormone, into lipophorin, the hemolymph lipoprotein. It increases the lipid carrying capacity of lipophorin by covering the expanding hydrophobic surface resulting from diacylglycerol uptake. It thus plays a critical role in the transport of lipids during flight in several species of insects.

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into Uniref entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
