ABC A1 (ATP-binding Cassette (ABC) Tansporter 1)
Description:
This membrane-associated protein is a member of the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. ABC proteins transport various molecules across extracellular and intracellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinct subfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, White). This protein is a member of the ABC1 subfamily. Members of the ABC1 subfamily comprise the only major ABC subfamily found exclusively in multicellular eukaryotes. This protein functions as a cholesteral efflux pump in the cellular lipid removal pathway. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Tangier's disease and familial high-density lipoprotein deficiency.
Mutations in the ABCA1 gene (ATP-binding cassette transporter 1) are associated with Tangier disease (TD). TD is an autosomal recessive disorder results from an absence of plasma HDL, cholesterol ester depositing in the reticulo-endothelial system and disorders in cellular lipid trafficking. It is expressed on the plasma membrane and the Golgi complex, and is regulated by cholesterol flux. Regulation of the cholesterol flux between HDL and macrophages is competitive between ABCA1 and SR-BI.
