oxysterol-binding protein KES1

Gene Summary

Enables oxysterol binding activity; phospholipid binding activity; and sterol transfer activity. Involved in several processes, including lipid transport; piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus; and post-Golgi vesicle-mediated transport. Located in Golgi membrane. Is extrinsic component of membrane. Orthologous to human OSBPL10 (oxysterol binding protein like 10) and OSBPL11 (oxysterol binding protein like 11).
