Rat anti Mouse ABCA1 antibody, clone 5A1.1422 recognizes murine adenosine triphosphate (ATP) Binding cassette transporter 1 (ABCA1). The ABC transporters are a large family of conserved proteins that transport a wide variety of molecules across cellular membranes. ABCA1 is a member of the ABC-A sub-family, which acts as a lipid translocator. The molecule was originally identified as a scavenger receptor on macrophages and research shows that ABCA1 also plays a major role in cholesterol metabolism. ABCA1 may play an important role in protecting against cardiovascular disease.

Mutations in ABCA1 gene have been associated with Tangier disease, a genetic disorder of lipid metabolism, and the more common Familial HDL deficiency, peresenting with many of the same symproms.
