Aliases for ATP11A Gene
External Ids for ATP11A Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane ATPase. The encoded protein is probably phosphorylated in its intermediate state and likely drives the transport of ions such as calcium across membranes. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ATP11A Gene
ATP11A (ATPase, Class VI, Type 11A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ATP11A include pulmonary fibrosis, idiopathic. Among its related pathways are Ion channel transport and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and phospholipid-translocating ATPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ATP8B4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ATP11A Gene
Catalytic component of a P4-ATPase flippase complex which catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP coupled to the transport of aminophospholipids from the outer to the inner leaflet of various membranes and ensures the maintenance of asymmetric distribution of phospholipids. Phospholipid translocation seems also to be implicated in vesicle formation and in uptake of lipid signaling molecules (Probable). May be involved in the uptake of farnesyltransferase inhibitor drugs, such as lonafarnib.
