Summary
Predicted to enable phospholipid transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in phospholipid transport and positive regulation of intracellular cholesterol transport. Predicted to be located in peroxisome. Is expressed in several structures, including adult head; embryonic/larval fat body; extended germ band embryo; and gut section. Orthologous to human SCP2 (sterol carrier protein 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
