Protein Coding Gene : Abca8b ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 8b

Primary Identifier  MGI:1351668 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  11 NCBI Gene Number  27404
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)

Predicted to have ATPase-coupled transmembrane transporter activity and lipid transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in lipid transport. Localizes to mitochondrial inner membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; eye; limb; male reproductive gland or organ; and nervous system. Orthologous to human ABCA8 (ATP binding cassette subfamily A member 8).
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit decreased circulating HDL cholesterol levels on a high-cholesterol diet compared with wild-type mice. [provided by MGI curators]
