Cellular retinaldehyde binding/alpha-tocopherol transport (IPR001071)

Short name: CRAL-bd_toc_tran

Family relationships


Alpha-tocopherol transport protein belongs to a large family of proteins which binds only alpha-tocopherol (and not the gamma form), and as such displays the same sort of stereo-selective binding as implicated with cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein (CRALBP) with which it is known to share sequence similarity [PMID: 8349655].
