Entrez Gene Summary for ISCA2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an A-type iron-sulfur cluster (ISC) protein found in mitochondria. The encoded protein appears to be involved in the maturation of mitochondrial iron-sulfur proteins. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]

GeneCards Summary for ISCA2 Gene
