Background of SCARB2 antibody

Scavenger receptor class BI or SCARB1 gene belongs to CD36 receptor family and encodes for at least two mR splice variants which are SR-BI and SR-BII, among which SR-BII variant is the main isoform in terms of mR levels in certain tissues. For example, SR-BII mR is 48-fold higher than SR-BI in brain cells and protein levels reaching 10-15% of SR-BI in the liver. Similar differential SR-BII protein expression levels have also been detected in considerable amounts in other tissues, such as testes, retil pigment epithelial cells, and spleen. SR-BII isoform differs from SR-BI only in its entirely different, yet highly conserved, cytoplasmic C-terminus which has been proposed to contains a sigl responsible for marked alterations in cellular distribution as well as cellular trafficking of SR-BII compared with SR-BI. In contrast to SR-BI, SR-BII mediates the rapid uptake of significant amounts of HDL into endosomal recycling compartment by a pathway which is different from selective lipid uptake at the cell surface (mediated by SR-BI). Because SR-BII influence cellular cholesterol trafficking/homeostasis in a manner distinct from SR-BI, the relative expression as well as functiol activities of these two isoforms create a potential means of regulating selective lipid transfer between HDL and cells.
