Gene: SCARA5 (scavenger receptor class A member 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SCARA5
Name: scavenger receptor class A member 5
Description: Predicted to have ferritin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular iron ion homeostasis; iron ion transmembrane transport; and protein homotrimerization. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-7H-xanthine; 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
