OSBPL11 Plays a role in regulating ADIPOQ and FABP4 levels in differentiating adipocytes and is also involved in regulation of adipocyte triglyceride storage. Weakly binds 25-hydroxycholesterol. Belongs to the OSBP family. Present at highest levels in ovary, testis, kidney, liver, stomach, brain, and adipose tissue. Strong expression (at protein level) in epithelial cells of kidney tubules, testicular tubules, caecum, and skin (PubMed:20599956). Present at low levels in subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue (at protein level)(PubMed:23028956). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
