Official Full Name
amiloride binding protein 1 (amine oxidase (copper-containing))
This gene encodes a membrane glycoprotein that is expressed in many epithelium-rich and/or hematopoietic tissues and oxidatively deaminates putrescine and histamine. The protein may play a role in controlling the level of histamine and/or putrescine in these tissues. It also binds to and is inhibited by amiloride, a diuretic that acts by closing epithelial sodium ion channels.
