Summaries for CCS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCS Gene

  • 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 Copper homeostasis and Cellular Senescence. GO annotations related to this gene include copper ion binding and copper ion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SOD1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCS Gene

  • Delivers copper to copper zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1).

Post-translational modifications for CCS Gene

  • Ubiquitinion by XIAP/BIRC4 leads to enhancement of its chaperone activity toward its physiologic target, SOD1, rather than proteasomal degradation. XIAP/BIRC4 preferentially ubiquitinates at Lys-241.
  • Ubiquitination at posLast=7676, Lys189, posLast=216216, and Lys241
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
