- FunctionTransporter that appears to play an indispensable role in the selective transport of the dietary cholesterol in and out of the enterocytes and in the selective sterol excretion by the liver into bile.
- Tissue specificityStrongly expressed in the liver, lower levels in the small intestine and colon.
- Involvement in diseaseDefects in ABCG5 are a cause of sitosterolemia (STSL) [MIM:210250]; also known as phytosterolemia or shellfish sterolemia. It is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by increased intestinal absorption of all sterols including cholesterol, plant and shellfish sterols, and decreased biliary excretion of dietary sterols into bile. Sitosterolemia patients have hypercholesterolemia, very high levels of plant sterols in the plasma, and frequently develop tendon and tuberous xanthomas, accelerated atherosclerosis and premature coronary artery disease.
- Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCG family. Eye pigment precursor importer (TC 3.A.1.204) subfamily.
Contains 1 ABC transmembrane type-2 domain.
Contains 1 ABC transporter domain.
