Summaries for ABCC4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ABCC4 Gene

  • 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 MRP subfamily which is involved in multi-drug resistance. This family member plays a role in cellular detoxification as a pump for its substrate, organic anions. It may also function in prostaglandin-mediated cAMP signaling in ciliogenesis. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ABCC4 Gene

ABCC4 (ATP Binding Cassette Subfamily C Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ABCC4 include Abcc4-Related Altered Drug Metabolism and Biliary Tract Disease. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity. An important paralog of this gene is ABCC2.
