Previous Symbols for ATP7B Gene
This gene is a member of the P-type cation transport ATPase family and encodes a protein with several membrane-spanning domains, an ATPase consensus sequence, a hinge domain, a phosphorylation site, and at least 2 putative copper-binding sites. This protein functions as a monomer, exporting copper out of the cells, such as the efflux of hepatic copper into the bile. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms with distinct cellular localizations, have been characterized. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Wilson disease (WD). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ATP7B Gene
ATP7B (ATPase, Cu++ Transporting, Beta Polypeptide) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ATP7B include wilson disease and menkes disease. 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 copper ion binding and copper-exporting ATPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ATP7A.
