ABCD1 is a member of thesuperfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. ABCproteins transport various molecules across extra- andintra-cellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinctsubfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, White). Thisprotein is a member of the ALD subfamily, which is involved inperoxisomal import of fatty acids and/or fatty acyl-CoAs in theorganelle. All known peroxisomal ABC transporters are halftransporters which require a partner half transporter molecule toform a functional homodimeric or heterodimeric transporter. Thisperoxisomal membrane protein is likely involved in the peroxisomaltransport or catabolism of very long chain fatty acids. Defects inthis gene have been identified as the underlying cause ofadrenoleukodystrophy, an X-chromosome recessively inheriteddemyelinating disorder of the nervous system.
