DESCRIPTION
Also known as STAR_DANRE, star. Plays a key role in steroid hormone synthesis by enhancing the metabolism of cholesterol into pregnenolone. Mediates the transfer of cholesterol from the outer mitochondrial membrane to the inner mitochondrial membrane where it is cleaved to pregnenolone (By similarity). May interact with TSPO.
