Apolipoprotein L, 3

apoL-III, CG12_1, CG12-1
This gene is a member of the apolipoprotein L gene family, and it is present in a cluster with other family members on chromosome 6. The encoded protein is found in the cytoplasm, where it may affect the movement of lipids, including cholesterol, and/or allow the binding of lipids to organelles. In addition, expression of this gene is up-regulated by tumor necrosis factor-alpha in endothelial cells lining the normal and atherosclerotic iliac artery and aorta. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009] (from NCBI)

Apolipoprotein L gene family: tissue-specific expression, splicing, promoter regions; discovery of a new gene.
Kane et al., San Francisco, United States. In J Lipid Res, 2001
The genes for all four proteins, apoL-I, apoL-II, apoL-III, and apoL-IV, are located at chromosome 22q12.1-13.1 within a 127,000-bp region.
Vascular endothelial genes that are responsive to tumor necrosis factor-alpha in vitro are expressed in atherosclerotic lesions, including inhibitor of apoptosis protein-1, stannin, and two novel genes.
Pannekoek et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Blood, 1999
These novel human cDNAs CA2_1, CG12_1, GG10_2, AG8_1, and GG2_1 encode inhibitor of apoptosis protein-1 (hIAP-1), homologues of apolipoprotein-L, mouse rabkinesin-6, rat stannin, and a novel 188 amino acid protein, respectively.
Fluorescence studies of exchangeable apolipoprotein-lipid interactions. Superficial association of apolipophorin III with lipoprotein surfaces.
Ryan et al., Edmonton, Canada. In J Biol Chem, 1998
These data provide insight into the spatial topography of apoLp-III alpha-helices in phospholipid disc complexes and support the concept that interaction with spherical lipoprotein particles results in superficial contact of apoL-III helical segments with the monolayer surface, providing a basis for its reversible binding ability.
