GeneCards Summary for ATP11C Gene
ATP11C (ATPase Phospholipid Transporting 11C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ATP11C include Hemolytic Anemia, Congenital, X-Linked and Congenital Hemolytic Anemia. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Ion channel transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and cation-transporting ATPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ATP11A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ATP11C 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. In the cell membrane of erythrocytes, it is required to maintain phosphatidylserine (PS) in the inner leaflet preventing its exposure on the surface. This asymmetric distribution is critical for the survival of erythrocytes in circulation since externalized PS is a phagocytic signal for splenic macrophages (PubMed:26944472). Phospholipid translocation seems also to be implicated in vesicle formation and in uptake of lipid signaling molecules (By similarity). Required for B cell differentiation past the pro-B cell stage (By similarity). Seems to mediate PS flipping in pro-B cells (By similarity). May be involved in the transport of cholestatic bile acids (By similarity).
