Gene information for APOD (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID347
Official gene symbolAPOD
Full nameapolipoprotein D
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a component of high density lipoprotein that has no marked similarity to other apolipoprotein sequences. It has a high degree of homology to plasma retinol-binding protein and other members of the alpha 2 microglobulin protein superfamily of carrier proteins, also known as lipocalins. This glycoprotein is closely associated with the enzyme lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase - an enzyme involved in lipoprotein metabolism. [provided by RefSeq]
