Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a plasma membrane receptor for high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL). The encoded protein mediates cholesterol transfer to and from HDL. In addition, this protein is a receptor for hepatitis C virus glycoprotein E2. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2019]
