Sterol carrier protein 2 (SCP-2) participates in the microsomal conversion of lanosterol to cholesterol, in the conversion of cholesterol to cholesterol ester, and in intracellular cholesterol transfers. The stoichiometry of binding between cholesterol and SCP-2 is 1:1. However, reports have appeared attributing sterol carrier protein activity to a protein preparation identical to hepatic fatty acid-binding protein (FABP). Therefore, the present investigation was conducted to compare… CONTINUE READING
