Gene: Osbpl8 (oxysterol binding protein-like 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Osbpl8
Name: oxysterol binding protein-like 8
RGD ID: 1558525
Description: Predicted to have cholesterol binding activity; lipid transporter activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of protein kinase B activity; positive regulation of glucose import; and positive regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to nuclear membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; immune system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human OSBPL8 (oxysterol binding protein like 8).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
