Entrez Gene Summary for ABCG8 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 White subfamily. The protein encoded by this gene functions to exclude non-cholesterol sterol entry at the intestinal level, promote excretion of cholesterol and sterols into bile, and to facilitate transport of sterols back into the intestinal lumen. It is expressed in a tissue-specific manner in the liver, intestine, and gallbladder. This gene is tandemly arrayed on chromosome 2, in a head-to-head orientation with family member ABCG5. Mutations in this gene may contribute to sterol accumulation and atherosclerosis, and have been observed in patients with sitosterolemia. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ABCG8 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ABCG8 Gene

  • ABCG5 and ABCG8 form an obligate heterodimer that mediates Mg(2+)- and ATP-dependent sterol transport across the cell membrane. Plays an essential role in the selective transport of the dietary cholesterol in and out of the enterocytes and in the selective sterol excretion by the liver into bile (PubMed:11099417, PubMed:11452359, PubMed:27144356, PubMed:15054092). Required for normal sterol homeostasis (PubMed:11099417, PubMed:11452359, PubMed:15054092). The heterodimer with ABCG5 has ATPase activity (PubMed:16893193, PubMed:20210363, PubMed:27144356).

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
The ATPase activity of the heterodimer is stimulated by cholate. Taurocholate, glycocholate, taurochenodeoxycholate, glycochenodeoxycholate and taurodeoxycholate also stimulate ATPase activity, but to a lower degree. Glycodeoxycholate has no significant effect on ATPase activity. ATPase activity is inhibited by vanadate and by berillium fluoride.

ABCG8_HUMAN
  • Gallbladder disease 4 (GBD4) [MIM:611465]: One of the major digestive diseases. Gallstones composed of cholesterol (cholelithiasis) are the common manifestations in western countries. Most people with gallstones, however, remain asymptomatic through their lifetimes. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17632509}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Sitosterolemia 1 (STSL1) [MIM:210250]: A form of sitosterolemia, an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder characterized by unregulated intestinal absorption of cholesterol, phytosterols and shellfish sterols, and decreased biliary excretion of dietary sterols into bile. Patients have hypercholesterolemia, very high levels of plant sterols in the plasma, and frequently develop tendon and tuberous xanthomas, accelerated atherosclerosis and premature coronary artery disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11099417, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11452359, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15054092}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
