Stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6 homolog

The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein involved in the metabolism of retinol. The encoded protein acts as a receptor for retinol/retinol binding protein complexes. This protein removes the retinol from the complex and transports it across the cell membrane. Defects in this gene are a cause of syndromic microphthalmia type 9 (MCOPS9). Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on STRA6
Vitamin A in regulation of insulin responsiveness: mini review.
Noy, Cleveland, United States. In Proc Nutr Soc, Feb 2016
At some tissues, retinol-bound (holo-) RBP4 is recognised by a receptor termed stimulated by retinoic acid 6 (STRA6) which transports retinol into cells.

The disorder is caused by mutations in STRA6, an important regulator of vitamin A and retinoic acid metabolism.
Nuclear and extranuclear effects of vitamin A.
Rochette-Egly et al., Russia. In Can J Physiol Pharmacol, Dec 2015
These novel scenarios involve: (i) other nuclear receptors such as PPAR β/δ, which regulate the expression of other target genes with other functions; (ii) extranuclear and nontranscriptional effects, such as the activation of kinases, which phosphorylate RARs and other transcription factors, thus expanding the list of the RA-activated genes; (iii) finally, vitamin A is active per se and can work as a cytokine that regulates gene transcription by activating STRA6.

Bi et al., Fuzhou, China. In Poult Sci, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: This study investigated the effects of xanthophylls (containing 40% lutein and 60% zeaxanthin; Juyuan Biochemical Co., Ltd., GuangZhou, China) on gene expression associated with carotenoid cleavage enzymes (β-carotene 15, 15'-monooxygenase, BCMO1; and β-carotene 9', 10'-dioxygenase, BCDO2) and retinoid metabolism (lecithin:retinol acyl transferase (LRAT) and STRA6) of breeding hens and chicks.
The effect of retinol binding protein on the proteome of C2C12 muscle cells.
Findlay et al., Ireland. In Diabetes Metab Res Rev, Dec 2015
BACKGROUND: Retinol binding protein (RBP) and its membrane receptor, STRA6, are vital for the management of vitamin A in the body.
STRA6: role in cellular retinol uptake and efflux.
von Lintig et al., Cleveland, United States. In Hepatobiliary Surg Nutr, Aug 2015
Increasing evidence indicates that this process is mediated by a multidomian membrane protein that is encoded by the stimulated by retinoic acid 6 (STRA6) gene.
Is retinol binding protein 4 a link between adiposity and cancer?
Berger et al., In Horm Mol Biol Clin Investig, Aug 2015
In addition to its function as a transport protein, RBP4 serves as a signaling molecule which, by binding to the membrane receptor STRA6, triggers downstream activation of pro-oncogenic pathways including JAK2/STAT3/5.
Vitamin A and Diabesity: New Insight for Drug Discovery.
Genchi et al., Rende, Italy. In Mini Rev Med Chem, Aug 2015
RBP4, interacts with two receptors, the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and the plasma membrane protein called stimulated by retinoic acid 6 (STRA6) leading to the activation of c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase (JNK) pathways and JAK2/STAT5 cascade, respectively.
Fusion protein of retinol-binding protein and albumin domain III reduces liver fibrosis.
Oh et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Embo Mol Med, Jun 2015
R-III uptake into cultured HSCs was significantly decreased by siRNA-STRA6, and injected R-III was localized predominantly in HSCs in liver.
Biochemical Basis for Dominant Inheritance, Variable Penetrance, and Maternal Effects in RBP4 Congenital Eye Disease.
Glaser et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Cell, May 2015
The disease mutations greatly reduce retinol binding to RBP, yet paradoxically increase the affinity of RBP for its cell surface receptor, STRA6.
Retinol binding protein 4 and its membrane receptors: a metabolic perspective.
Schupp et al., In Horm Mol Biol Clin Investig, Apr 2015
We pay special attention to the involvement of RBP4 membrane receptors that were identified during these years, such as 'stimulated by retinoic acid 6' (STRA6), and whose identification added another layer of complexity to RBP4's diverse actions.
Vitamin A Transport Mechanism of the Multitransmembrane Cell-Surface Receptor STRA6.
Sun et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Membranes (basel), 2014
This "drug delivery system" is mediated by plasma retinol binding protein (RBP), the principle and specific vitamin A carrier protein in the blood, and STRA6, the cell-surface receptor for RBP that mediates cellular vitamin A uptake.
Cross talk between signaling and vitamin A transport by the retinol-binding protein receptor STRA6.
Noy et al., Cleveland, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2012
STRA6 orchestrates a multicomponent machinery that couples vitamin A homeostasis and metabolism to activation of a signaling cascade and that, in turn, STRA6 signaling regulates the cellular uptake of the vitamin.

Ross et al., United States. In J Nutr, 2012
The effects of vitamin A, retinoic acid, and polyinosinic acid:polycytidylic acid on the systemic antigen-specific antibody response in mice vaccinated with tetanus toxoids are reported.
