Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 23460 Official Symbol ABCA6
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms EST155051; FLJ43498
Full Name ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 6
Description ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 6
Chromosome 17q24.3
Also Known As ABC transporter ABCA6; ATP-binding cassette A6; ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A, member 6
Summary The membrane-associated 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 intracellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinct subfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, and White). This encoded 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 gene is clustered among 4 other ABC1 family members on 17q24 and may play a role in macrophage lipid homeostasis. [provided by RefSeq]
