The ABC Superfamily stands for ATP Binding Cassette Family. These proteins are invloved in ion transport across the memberane, with members including CFTR AND P-Glycoprotein. The standard structure of a member of the ABC is 12 membrane-spanning domains and 2 Nucleotide Binding Domains (occassionally referred to as a Nucleotide Folding Domain).
