ABCC9

ABCC9

A gene on chromosome 12p12.1 that encodes a protein of the MRP subfamily of the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, which transport various molecules across extra- and intracellular membranes, many of which are involved in multidrug resistance. ABCC9 appears to form ATP-sensitive potassium channels in cardiac, skeletal, and vascular and non-vascular smooth muscle, and may have a role as the drug-binding channel-modulating subunit of the extra-pancreatic ATP-sensitive K+ channels.

Molecular pathology
ABCC9 mutations are linked to dilated cardiomyopathy type 1O.

The channel contains a regulatory subunit, composed of the ABCC8 or ABCC9 (ATP-binding cassette, subfamily C members 8 and 9) gene products referred to as sulfonylurea receptor 1 and 2 (SUR1 and SUR2) proteins [2], respectively.

Among those, we selected, for the microarray and RNA-seq analyses, four PG transporters, ABCC1 (also known as MRP1), ABCC9 (also known as sulfonylurea receptor 2 [SUR2]), SLCO4C1 (also known as OATP4C1), and SLCO5A1 (also known as OATP5A1), because these have been shown to be differentially expressed in the uterine endometrium during early pregnancy [10,11].
