StAR-related lipid transfer protein 3

Gene

stard3

Organism
Danio rerio (Zebrafish) (Brachydanio rerio)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Sterol-binding protein that mediates cholesterol transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to endosomes. Creates contact site between the endoplasmic reticulum and late endosomes: localizes to late endosome membranes and contacts the endoplasmic reticulum. Acts as a lipid transfer protein that redirects sterol to the endosome at the expense of the cell membrane and favors membrane formation inside endosomes.By similarity

Domaini

The START domain mediates lipid-transfer between membranes. It contains a hydrophobic cavity able to accommodate one lipid molecule, thereby serving as a 'hydrophobic bridge' across the aqueous gap between donor and acceptor organelle membranes.By similarity
The MENTAL domain anchors the protein in endosome membranes and exposes the START domain in the cytosol.By similarity

Sequence similaritiesi

Belongs to the STARD3 family.Curated
