ATP-binding cassette sub-family A member 13 also known as ABCA13 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ABCA13 gene on chromosome 7.[1] It belongs to the wide ATP-binding cassette family of proteins. The protein contains 5058 residues, and is currently the largest known protein of the ABC family.[2]

Clinical significance[edit]

One study suggests that rare variations and mutations of the gene may be linked to psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression.[3]
