Summaries for ABCC8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ABCC8 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 protein functions as a modulator of ATP-sensitive potassium channels and insulin release. Mutations and deficiencies in this protein have been observed in patients with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy, an autosomal recessive disorder of unregulated and high insulin secretion. Mutations have also been associated with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus type II, an autosomal dominant disease of defective insulin secretion. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2013]

GeneCards Summary for ABCC8 Gene

ABCC8 (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family C (CFTR/MRP), Member 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ABCC8 include hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia, familial, 1 and hypoglycemia of infancy, leucine-sensitive. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel binding and potassium ion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is ABCC5.

Disorders for ABCC8 Gene

(5) OMIM Diseases for ABCC8 Gene (600509)


  • Leucine-induced hypoglycemia (LIH) [MIM:240800]: Rare cause of hypoglycemia and is described as a condition in which symptomatic hypoglycemia is provoked by high protein feedings. Hypoglycemia is also elicited by administration of oral or intravenous infusions of a single amino acid, leucine. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15356046}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 1 (HHF1) [MIM:256450]: Most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infancy. Unless early and aggressive intervention is undertaken, brain damage from recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia may occur. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10202168, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10334322, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12364426, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12941782, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15562009, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15579781, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15807877, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16357843, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16429405, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24814349, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25720052, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8751851, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8923011, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9618169, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9769320}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Diabetes mellitus, permanent neonatal (PNDM) [MIM:606176]: A rare form of diabetes distinct from childhood-onset autoimmune diabetes mellitus type 1. It is characterized by insulin-requiring hyperglycemia that is diagnosed within the first months of life. Permanent neonatal diabetes requires lifelong therapy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16613899, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16885549, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17213273, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17668386}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Transient neonatal diabetes mellitus 2 (TNDM2) [MIM:610374]: Neonatal diabetes is a form of diabetes mellitus defined by the onset of mild-to-severe hyperglycemia within the first months of life. Transient neonatal diabetes remits early, with a possible relapse during adolescence. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16885549}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
