Gene: Osbpl8 (oxysterol binding protein-like 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Osbpl8
Name: oxysterol binding protein-like 8
RGD ID: 1561474
Description: Predicted to have cholesterol binding activity; lipid transporter activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including activation of protein kinase B activity; negative regulation of sequestering of triglyceride; and positive regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to cortical endoplasmic reticulum; cytosol; and nuclear membrane. Orthologous to human OSBPL8 (oxysterol binding protein like 8); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acetamide; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: hypothetical protein LOC314824; LOC314824; oxysterol-binding protein-related protein 8; RGD1561474; similar to oxysterol-binding protein-like protein 8 isoform a
