Gene: ABCB6 (ATP binding cassette subfamily B member 6 (Langereis blood group)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ABCB6
Name: ATP binding cassette subfamily B member 6 (Langereis blood group)
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity; heme binding activity; and transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in animal organ development; heme transport; and porphyrin-containing compound biosynthetic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and integral component of mitochondrial outer membrane. Implicated in dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
