Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables apolipoprotein A-I receptor activity and phospholipid transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including learning or memory; positive regulation of transport; and regulation of MAPK cascade. Acts upstream of or within phospholipid efflux. Located in several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; phagocytic cup; and ruffle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; hemolymphoid system; integumental system; nervous system; and nose. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease 9. Orthologous to human ABCA7 (ATP binding cassette subfamily A member 7).
