    Curr Opin Lipidol 14:341-5. 2003
    ..The newly identified sterolin proteins involved in the absorption and excretion of dietary sterols may fit this bill. If so, we would speculate that a better biomarker may be lurking within their substrate specificities...

    BMC Med 2:5. 2004
    ..No phenotypic difference has yet been described in humans with complete defects in either ABCG5 or ABCG8. These proteins, based upon the defects in humans, are responsible for regulating dietary sterol entry and biliary sterol secretion...

    BMC Gastroenterol 4:21. 2004
    ..Based upon the defects in sitosterolemia, ABCG5 and ABCG8 serve specifically to exclude non-cholesterol sterol entry at the intestinal level and are involved in sterol excretion at the hepatobiliary level...
