Anti-ABCA1 Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
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 functions as a cholesterol efflux pump in the cellular lipid removal pathway. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Tangiers disease and familial high-density lipoprotein deficiency. ABCA1 (ATP-binding Cassette, Sub-family A, Member 1), also known as ABC1 (ABC Transporter 1) or CERP (Cholesterol efflux regulatory protein), is a member of the family of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. It is a cAMP-dependent, sulfonylurea-sensitive traffic ATPase, which is located at the plasma membrane and plays a key role in the cellular lipid removal pathway. ABCA1 supports apolipoprotein A-I (APOA1)-mediated cellular efflux of cholesterol and choline-phospholipids into the blood circulation; therefore, ABCA1 defects result in reduced plasma level of high density lipoproteins (HDL) combined with the tissue deposition of cholesteryl esters. More commonly, ABCA1 inherited defects are associated with a milder condition, so-called familial hypoalphalipoproteinemia (FHA). FHA patients, similar to Tangier disease patients, demonstrate a very evident decrease of HDL level; however, they lack clinical manifestations.
