    ABCG2 Summary & Protein Information

    ABCG2 Background

    Subunit structure: Monomer under reducing conditions, the minimal functional units is a homodimer; disulfide-linked, but the major oligomeric form in plasma membranes is a homotetramer with possibility of higher order oligomerization up to homododecamers. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15001581, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17686774}.
    Domain: The extracellular loop 3 (ECL3) is involved in binding porphyrins and transfer them to other carriers, probably albumin. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:20705604}.
    Subcellular location: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Mitochondrion membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
    Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in placenta. Low expression in small intestine, liver and colon. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:9850061, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9861027}.
    Induction: Up-regulated in brain tumors.
    Post-translational: Glycosylation-deficient ABCG2 is normally expressed and functional. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15807535}.
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCG family. Eye pigment precursor importer (TC 3.A.1.204) subfamily. {ECO:0000305}.; Contains 1 ABC transmembrane type-2 domain. {ECO:0000305}.; Contains 1 ABC transporter domain. {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00434}.
