APOD

Official Full Name
apolipoprotein D
Background
This 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
Synonyms
APOD protein; Apolipoprotein D; apolipoprotein D OTTHUMP00000208788; ApoD; Apo-D; OTTHUMP00000208787; lipocalin
