Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable cholesterol binding activity. Predicted to be involved in SREBP signaling pathway; negative regulation of lipid biosynthetic process; and ubiquitin-dependent ERAD pathway. Predicted to act upstream of or within cholesterol metabolic process. Predicted to be located in endoplasmic reticulum. Predicted to be part of protein-containing complex. Predicted to be active in endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia 62. Orthologous to human ERLIN1 (ER lipid raft associated 1).
