Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 27403 Official Symbol Abca7
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms ABCX; Abc51
Full Name ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 7
Description ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 7
Chromosome 10 B4-C1|10 44.0 cM
Also Known As ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A, member 7
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 intracellular 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 protein is widely expressed with highest detection in spleen and hematopoietic tissues. The function of this protein has not yet been determined; however, a related human protein is thought to play a role in lipid homeostasis in cells of the immune system. [provided by RefSeq]
