APOO

Official Full Name
apolipoprotein O
Background
This gene is a member of the apolipoprotein family. Members of this protein family are involved in the transport and metabolism of lipids. The encoded protein associates with HDL, LDL and VLDL lipoproteins and is characterized by chondroitin-sulfate glycosylation. This protein may be involved in preventing lipid accumulation in the myocardium in obese and diabetic patients. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 3, 4, 5, 12 and 16.
Synonyms
APOO; apolipoprotein O; FAM121B, family with sequence similarity 121B; MGC4825; My025; brain my025; family with sequence similarity 121B; FAM121B
