Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
Buffer before Lyophilization Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20℃/-80℃. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.

Protein FAQs
Storage Condition Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Note: All of our proteins are default shipped with normal blue ice packs, if you request to ship with dry ice, please communicate with us in advance and extra fees will be charged.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Background

ABCG5 and ABCG8 form an obligate heterodimer that mediates Mg(2+)- and ATP-dependent sterol transport across the cell membrane. Plays an essential role in the selective transport of the dietary cholesterol in and out of the enterocytes and in the selective sterol excretion by the liver into bile. Plays an important role in preventing the accumulation of dietary plant sterols in the body. Required for normal sterol homeostasis. The heterodimer with ABCG5 has ATPase activity.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Alternatively spliced forms for Abcg8 were identified, resulting from a CAG repeat at the intron 1 splice-acceptor site, causing a deletion of a glutamine PMID: 11907139
  2. Although Abcg8 is essential for most diosgenin-induced biliary cholesterol hypersecretion, diosgenin probably does not interact directly with Abcg5/Abcg8, but rather increases cholesterol delivery to the heterodimer. PMID: 15619238
  3. aging significantly enhances cholesterol absorption by suppressing expression of the jejunal and ileal sterol efflux transporter Abcg8 PMID: 16179600
  4. distinct roles for liver and intestinal ABCG5/G8 in modulating sterol metabolism and atherosclerosis in abcg8 transgenic mice. PMID: 17060690
  5. Deletion of the Abcg8 gene alone significantly increases the mass of intestinal cholesterol and sitostanol absorption and reduces but does not eliminate hepatic secretion of cholesterol. PMID: 17393508
  6. ABCG8 mice develop sitosterolemia, a genetic disorder characterized by the accumulation of phytosterols in blood and tissues PMID: 18796403
