Analysis of chimeric receptors shows that multiple distinct functional activities of scavenger receptor, class B, type I (SR-BI), are localized to the extracellular receptor domain.


Scavenger receptor BI (SR-BI) mediates the selective uptake of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesteryl ester (CE), a process by which HDL CE is taken into the cell without degradation of the HDL particle. In addition, SR-BI stimulates the bi-directional flux of free cholesterol (FC) between cells and lipoproteins, an activity that may be responsible for… (More)
