ABCB6 Information: ABCB6 Protein, ABCB6 Antibody and ABCB6 Gene

ABCB6 Gene family

ABCB6 Protein

ABCB6 protein function

Binds heme and porphyrins and functions in their ATP-dependent uptake into the mitochondria. Plays a crucial role in heme synthesis.

ABCB6 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Widely expressed. High expression is detected in the retinal epithelium.


Up-regulated by cellular porphyrins (at protein level). Up-regulated during erythroid differentiation (at protein level).
