Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 10347 Official Symbol ABCA7
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms ABCA-SSN; ABCX; FLJ40025
Full Name ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 7
Description ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 7
Chromosome 19p13.3
Also Known As ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A, member 7; autoantigen SS-N; macrophage ABC transporter
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. ABC proteins transport various molecules across extra- and intra-cellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinct subfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, White). This protein is a member of the ABC1 subfamily. Members of the ABC1 subfamily comprise the only major ABC subfamily found exclusively in multicellular eukaryotes. This full transporter has been detected predominantly in myelo-lymphatic tissues with the highest expression in peripheral leukocytes, thymus, spleen, and bone marrow. The function of this protein is not yet known; however, the expression pattern suggests a role in lipid homeostasis in cells of the immune system. [provided by RefSeq]
