    basic FUNCTION
  • playing a role in cell sterol metabolism
  • may be functioning to protect cells from over-accumulation of cholesterol
  • RNA-binding protein previously implicated in heterochromatin formation and chromosome segregation (Zhou 2008)
  • plays a pivotal role in the endocrine regulation of both lipids and cholesterol (Chen 2003)
  • key regulator in proliferating cells (Felder 2009)
