Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Protein involved in lipid droplet (LD) assembly; forms a complex with Sei1p at ER-LD contact sites, stabilizing contact sites; ensures that LDs bud from the ER towards the cytosolic side of the membrane; null mutants have decreased net negative cell surface charge and localized accumulation of phosphatidic acid (PA) marker proteins; GFP-fusion protein expression is induced in response to MMS; null mutant can be complemented by the human seipin, BSCL2 [Source:SGD;Acc:S000000511]


Chromosome III: 108,021-108,791 forward strand.
