Previous Symbols for DPH3 Gene
This gene encodes a CSL zinc finger-containing protein that is required for dipthamide biosynthesis. The encoded protein is necessary for the initial step in the modification of a histidine residue in elongation factor-2 to diphthamide. This modified residue is a target for ADP ribosylation by the bacterial toxins diphtheria toxin and Pseudomonas exotoxin A. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same isoform. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]
GeneCards Summary for DPH3 Gene
DPH3 (Diphthamide Biosynthesis 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DPH3 include diphtheria.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DPH3 Gene
Essential for the first step in the synthesis of diphthamide, a post-translational modification of histidine which occurs in elongation factor 2 (EEF2) and which can be ADP-ribosylated by diphtheria toxin and by Pseudomonas exotoxin A (Eta).
Down-regulation increases extracellular release of proteoglycans, indicating a possible role in the secretion process. Stimulates binding of GNEFR to SEC5.
