Function Transporter that appears to play an indispensable role in the selective transport of the dietary cholesterol in and out of the enterocytes and in the selective sterol excretion by the liver into bile.
Subcellular Location Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Involvement in Disease Gallbladder disease 4: One of the major digestive diseases. Gallstones composed of cholesterol: Rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by increased intestinal absorption of all sterols including cholesterol, plant and shellfish sterols, and decreased biliary excretion of dietary sterols into bile. Sitosterolemia patients have hypercholesterolemia, very high levels of plant sterols in the plasma, and frequently develop tendon and tuberous xanthomas, accelerated atherosclerosis and premature coronary artery disease. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Tissue Specificity Strongly expressed in the liver, lower levels in the small intestine and colon. Detectable in a wide variety of human tissues.
Subunit Structure May form heterodimers with ABCG5 or be tightly coupled to ABCG5 along a pathway regulating diatery-sterol absorption and excretion.
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCG family. Eye pigment precursor importer (TC 3.A.1.204) subfamily. Contains 1 ABC transmembrane type-2 domain. Contains 1 ABC transporter domain.
