Short name: ApoD_vertbrte

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Apolipoprotein D is a member of the lipocalin family with a high degree of sequence conservation from insects to mammals. It is a small, soluble carrier protein of lipophilic molecules mostly expressed in neurons and glial cells within the central and peripheral nervous system [PMID: 24612673]. It may have a role in anti-aging mechanism [PMID: 25868396, PMID: 21688324].
