MetaCyc Enzyme: cellular retinol-binding protein 1

Gene: RBP1 Accession Number: HS03740 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: CRBP1, cellular retinol-binding protein, cellular retinol-binding protein I, CRBP, CRBP-I, retinol-binding protein 1

Species: Homo sapiens

Summary:
Plasma retinol-binding protein (RBPs) and cellular retinol-binding proteins (CRBPs) are specific carriers of the alcohol form of vitamin A (retinol) in body fluids and within the cell, respectively. The sequestration of retinol inside a high-affinity binding-protein draws retinol into the cell and protects it from unfettered metabolism, while still allowing the formation of retinyl esters [Newcomer98, Cowan93]. LRAT, the enzyme that forms retinyl-esters, can access retinol when it is bound to CRBP1 [Yost88, MacDonald88].

The CRBPs are monomeric proteins of approximately 15.5 kDa belonging to a superfamily of small cytoplasmic proteins that specifically interact with hydrophobic ligands. Two such proteins (CRBP I and CRBP II) with distinct tissue distributions and retinoid-binding properties have been recognized in mammals.

The human CRBP I is expressed at high levels in many tissues, including ovary, adrenal and pituitary glands, and testis [Ong86], while CRBP II is confined essentially to the small intestine. In addition, the Kd of the retinol-CRBP I complex is as low as 0.1 nM [Malpeli95], whereas the binding of retinol to CRBP II is ~100-fold weaker [Li91].

The very high-affinity retinol binding-protein, holo-CRBP1, represents the major physiological form of intracellular retinol. Apo-CRBP1 interacts with enzymes to signal that the intracellular concentration of retinol is low and stimulate the hydrolysis of retinyl-esters [Boerman91, Napoli11]. The total CRBP1 concentration remains steady even when vitamin A status varies.

The RBP1 gene has been assigned to human chromosome band 3q23 [Wei87, Nilsson88, De98].
