24440759 Studies show the 3 steroidogenic acute regulatory-related lipid transfer (START) domain proteins StarD4, StarD5 and StarD6 have a similar lipid binding pocket specific for sterols (cholesterol in particular), but differing regulation and localization.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20237496 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19474188 Data support STARD5 functioning in kidney, specifically within proximal tubule cells, and suggest a role in ER-associated cholesterol transport.
16534142 The presence of StarD5 different human liver cells that are related to inflammatory processes provides new clues to its role of in free sterol transport in the cells and in lipid-mediated atherogenesis.
15897605 demonstrated StarD5 protein in liver cytosolic fractions only, suggesting StarD5 as a directional cytosolic sterol carrier
15760897 StarD4 is regulated by sterols via SREBP-2, and StarD5 is activated by ER stress cholesterol metabolism; they serve different functions
