Oxysterol binding protein-like 6
This gene encodes a member of the oxysterol-binding protein (OSBP) family, a group of intracellular lipid receptors. Most members contain an N-terminal pleckstrin homology domain and a highly conserved C-terminal OSBP-like sterol-binding domain. Transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.

Furthermore, in experiments with either truncated cDNAs encoding the OSBP-related ligand-binding domains of the ORPs or the full-length proteins, photo-25OH was bound to OSBP, ORP3, ORP4, ORP5, ORP6, ORP7, ORP8, ORP10 and ORP11.

Analysis of ORP mRNA levels in unloaded or acetylated LDL-loaded human macrophages revealed that the expression of ORP genes was not significantly affected by the loading, with the exception of ORP6, which was up-regulated 2-fold.
