Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Member of an oxysterol-binding protein family with seven members; in S. cerevisiae, family members have overlapping, redundant functions in sterol metabolism and collectively perform a function essential for viability; contains FFAT motif; interacts with ER anchor Scs2p at patches at the plasma membrane and at the nuclear envelope; regulated by sterol binding; OSH2 has a paralog, SWH1, that arose from the whole genome duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002177]


Chromosome IV: 417,663-421,514 reverse strand.
