|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||75592 Da|
|Antigen Region||359-387 aa|
|Other Names||ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 1, ATP-binding cassette transporter 8, White protein homolog, ABCG1, ABC8, WHT1|
|Target/Specificity||This ABCG1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 359-387 amino acids from the Central region of human ABCG1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ABCG1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transporter involved in macrophage lipid homeostasis. Is an active component of the macrophage lipid export complex. Could also be involved in intracellular lipid transport processes. The role in cellular lipid homeostasis may not be limited to macrophages.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Predominantly localized in the intracellular compartments mainly associated with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi membranes|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in several tissues. Expressed in macrophages; expression is increased in macrophages from patients with Tangier disease.|

ABCG1 is a member of the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. ABC proteins transport various molecules across extra- and intra-cellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinct subfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, White). This protein is a member of the White subfamily. It is involved in macrophage cholesterol and phospholipids transport, and may regulate cellular lipid homeostasis in other cell types.
