High impact information on Abca5

  • The transcripts of these genes contain an open reading frame from 4863 (for Abca8a and Abca8b) to 4929 (for Abca5) nucleotides, and have distinct tissue-specific expression pattern [1].
  • For instance, the Fugu rubripes genome contains an ortholog for only one gene, Abca5, from this cluster [1].
