Description

Entrez Gene Summary for LCN8
Members of the lipocalin family, such as LCN8, have a common structure consisting of an 8-stranded antiparallel beta-barrel that forms a cup-shaped ligand-binding pocket or calyx. Lipocalins generally bind small hydrophobic ligands and transport them to specific cells (Suzuki et al., 2004 (PubMed 15363845)).(supplied by OMIM, Aug 2009)

UniProtKB Summary for LCN8
Function: May play a role in male fertility. May act as a retinoid carrier protein within the epididymis
