Copper chaperone for superoxide dismutase specifically delivers Cu to copper/zinc superoxide dismutase and may activate copper/zinc superoxide dismutase through direct insertion of the Cu cofactor. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CCS Gene
CCS (Copper Chaperone For Superoxide Dismutase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCS include entropion and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1. Among its related pathways are Cellular Senescence and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). GO annotations related to this gene include copper ion binding and copper ion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SOD3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCS Gene
