Summaries for EFHD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EFHD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the EF-hand super family of calcium binding proteins, which are involved in a variety of cellular processes including mitosis, synaptic transmission, and cytoskeletal rearrangement. The protein encoded by this gene is composed of an N-terminal disordered region, proline-rich elements, two EF-hands, and a C-terminal coiled-coil domain. This protein has been shown to associate with the mitochondrial inner membrane, and in HeLa cells, acts as a novel mitochondrial calcium ion sensor for mitochondrial flash activation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

GeneCards Summary for EFHD1 Gene

EFHD1 (EF-Hand Domain Family Member D1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is EFHD2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EFHD1 Gene

  • Acts as a calcium sensor for mitochondrial flash (mitoflash) activation, an event characterized by stochastic bursts of superoxide production (PubMed:26975899). May play a role in neuronal differentiation (By similarity).
