ABC transporter, G1 (IPR020064)

Short name: ABCG1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry represents ABC type transporters, ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 1 (ABCG1). It may be involved in macrophage lipid homeostasis and are active components of the macrophage lipid export complex. They may also be involved in intracellular lipid transport processes in general and their role in cellular lipid homeostasis may not be limited to macrophages [PMID: 10799558, PMID: 14668945].
