Scavenger receptor class B, type I (SR-BI) is the receptor for high density lipoprotein (HDL) that mediates cellular uptake of HDL cholesteryl ester (CE) and is a major route for cholesterol delivery to steroidogenic pathways. SR-BI is localized in specialized microvillar channel plasma membrane compartments that retain HDL and are sites for HDL CE selective uptake. In fact, adrenal gland microvillar channel formation is regulated by adrenocorticotropin hormone and requires SR-BI expression. SR… CONTINUE READING
