Summaries for NCF1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NCF1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a 47 kDa cytosolic subunit of neutrophil NADPH oxidase. This oxidase is a multicomponent enzyme that is activated to produce superoxide anion. Mutations in this gene have been associated with chronic granulomatous disease. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NCF1 Gene

NCF1 (Neutrophil Cytosolic Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NCF1 include chronic granulomatous disease due to deficiency of ncf-1 and chronic granulomatous disease. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and PAK Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and electron carrier activity. An important paralog of this gene is SH3PXD2B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NCF1 Gene

  • NCF2, NCF1, and a membrane bound cytochrome b558 are required for activation of the latent NADPH oxidase (necessary for superoxide production).

Domains for NCF1 Gene


  • The PX domain mediates interaction with phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate and other anionic phospholipids. In the autoinhibited, unphosphorylated state an intramolecular interaction with the C-terminal SH3 domain precludes phospholipid binding and interaction with CYBA. Phosphorylation disrupts the autoinhibited state.:
    • P14598
  • Contains 1 PX (phox homology) domain.:
