ATP-binding cassette transporters G1 and G4 mediate cholesterol and desmosterol efflux to HDL and regulate sterol accumulation in the brain

Transporters in the ABCG family appear to be involved in the cellular excretion of cholesterol and other sterols in a cell- and tissue-specific fashion. Overexpression of ATP-binding cassette transporters G1 (Abcg1) and G4 (Abcg4) can promote cellular cholesterol efflux to high-density lipoprotein (...
