Summaries for ABCA9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ABCA9 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters and the encoded protein contains two transmembrane domains and two nucleotide binding folds. 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 gene is a member of the ABC1 subfamily and is clustered with four other ABC1 family members on chromosome 17q24. Transcriptional expression of this gene is induced during monocyte differentiation into macrophages and is suppressed by cholesterol import. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ABCA9 Gene

ABCA9 (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family A (ABC1), Member 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and ABC-family proteins mediated transport. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ABCA4.
