Exhibits several functions, including chaperone binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including aminophospholipid transport; protein targeting to lysosome; and regulation of glucosylceramidase activity. Localizes to the endocytic vesicle membrane; lysosome; and plasma membrane. Used to study progressive myoclonus epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in progressive myoclonus epilepsy. Orthologous to human SCARB2 (scavenger receptor class B member 2).
