Summaries for ABCC6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ABCC6 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). The encoded protein, a member of the MRP subfamily, is involved in multi-drug resistance. Mutations in this gene cause pseudoxanthoma elasticum. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different proteins have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ABCC6 Gene

ABCC6 (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family C (CFTR/MRP), Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ABCC6 include pseudoxanthoma elasticum and arterial calcification, generalized, of infancy, 2. 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 transporter activity and ATPase activity, coupled to transmembrane movement of substances. An important paralog of this gene is ABCC5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ABCC6 Gene

  • Isoform 1: May participate directly in the active transport of drugs into subcellular organelles or influence drug distribution indirectly. Transports glutathione conjugates as leukotriene-c4 (LTC4) and N-ethylmaleimide S-glutathione (NEM-GS).

  • Isoform 2: Inhibits TNF-alpha-mediated apoptosis through blocking one or more caspases.

Disorders for ABCC6 Gene

(3) OMIM Diseases for ABCC6 Gene (603234)


  • Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) [MIM:264800]: A multisystem disorder characterized by accumulation of mineralized and fragmented elastic fibers in the skin, vascular walls, and Burch membrane in the eye. Clinically, patients exhibit characteristic lesions of the posterior segment of the eye including peau dorange, angioid streaks, and choroidal neovascularizations, of the skin including soft, ivory colored papules in a reticular pattern that predominantly affect the neck and large flexor surfaces, and of the cardiovascular system with peripheral and coronary arterial occlusive disease as well as gastrointestinal bleedings. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10811882, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10835642, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10954200, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11427982, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11536079, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11702217, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15086542, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15098239, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15459974, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16086317, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17617515, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19339160, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20034067, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25615550}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Homozygous or compound heterozygous ABCC6 mutations have been found in the overwhelming majority of cases. Individuals carrying heterozygous mutations express limited manifestations of the pseudoxanthoma elasticum phenotype.
  • Arterial calcification of infancy, generalized, 2 (GACI2) [MIM:614473]: A severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by calcification of the internal elastic lamina of muscular arteries and stenosis due to myointimal proliferation. The disorder is often fatal within the first 6 months of life because of myocardial ischemia resulting in refractory heart failure. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22209248}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
