|Other Names||ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 6, mitochondrial, Mitochondrial ABC transporter 3, Mt-ABC transporter 3, P-glycoprotein-related protein, Ubiquitously-expressed mammalian ABC half transporter, ABCB6, MTABC3, PRP, UMAT|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6113a was selected from the C-term region of human ABCB6 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||MTABC3, PRP, UMAT|
|Function||Binds heme and porphyrins and functions in their ATP- dependent uptake into the mitochondria. Plays a crucial role in heme synthesis.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane. Mitochondrion outer membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum. Golgi apparatus. Endosome. Note=localized to the endosome- like compartement and dendrite tips|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. High expression is detected in the retinal epithelium.|

The membrane-associated protein ABCB6 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 MDR/TAP subfamily. Members of the MDR/TAP subfamily are involved in multidrug resistance as well as antigen presentation. This half-transporter likely plays a role in mitochondrial function. Localized to 2q26, this gene is considered a candidate gene for lethal neonatal metabolic syndrome, a disorder of mitochondrial function.
