ABCA3 Information: ABCA3 Protein, ABCA3 Antibody and ABCA3 Gene

ABCA3 Gene family

ABCA3 Protein

ABCA3 protein function

Plays an important role in the formation of pulmonary surfactant, probably by transporting lipids such as cholesterol.

ABCA3 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Highly expressed in lung, followed by brain, pancreas, skeletal muscle and heart. Weakly expressed in placenta, kidney and liver. Also expressed in medullary thyroid carcinoma cells (MTC) and in C-cell carcinoma.
