Technical Data
ABCB5 (ATP-binding cassette, sub-family B MDR/TAP, ABCB5alpha, ABCB5beta, EST422562, ATP-binding cassette, sub-family B, member 5N: P-glycoprotein ABCB5)
ABCB5 belongs to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter superfamily of integral membrane proteins. A number of distinct forms of ABCB5 have been shown to be expressed in various tissue types, including, but not limited to, melanocytes, melanoma cells, testis, mammary tissue, and retinal pigmented epithelium. ABCB5 is also indicated to be a metastatic melanoma progression marker.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
