Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NOX1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the NADPH oxidase family of enzymes responsible for the catalytic one-electron transfer of oxygen to generate superoxide or hydrogen peroxide. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]
GeneCards Summary for NOX1 Gene
NOX1 (NADPH Oxidase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NOX1 include Chronic Granulomatous Disease and Galactosemia. Among its related pathways are AGE-RAGE signaling pathway in diabetic complications and G-protein signaling RAC1 in cellular process. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and Rac GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CYBB.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NOX1 Gene
NOH-1S is a voltage-gated proton channel that mediates the H(+) currents of resting phagocytes and other tissues. It participates in the regulation of cellular pH and is blocked by zinc. NOH-1L is a pyridine nucleotide-dependent oxidoreductase that generates superoxide and might conduct H(+) ions as part of its electron transport mechanism, whereas NOH-1S does not contain an electron transport chain.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidases are multi-subunit enzyme complexes that transfer electrons across biological membranes and catalyze the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
