Systematic name YDR135C
Gene name YCF1
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr IV:727551..723004
Primary SGDID S000002542

Description of YDR135C: Vacuolar glutathione S-conjugate transporter; member of the ATP-binding cassette family; has a role in detoxifying metals such as cadmium, mercury, and arsenite; also transports unconjugated bilirubin, selenodigluthatione, and oxidized glutathione; similar to human cystic fibrosis protein CFTR[1][2][3][4][5][6]
