ABCA2 (ATP-binding Cassette Sub-family A Member 2, ATP-binding Cassette Transporter 2, ATP-binding Cassette 2, ABC2, KIAA1062)
Description:
ATP binding cassette (ABC) transporters are a large family of conserved proteins that translocate molecules across cellular membranes. ABCA2 is a 250kD member of the ABCA subfamily, which is predominantly expressed in the central nervous system, ovary and macrophages. The ABCA2 molecule shares homology with ABCA1 and ABCA7 and plays an important role in lipid metabolism. ABCA2 has been associated with Alzheimer's disease, and studies suggest that ABCA2 could also be involved in drug transport and resistance of tumours to chemotherapy.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
