Summaries for NUBPL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NUBPL Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Mrp/NBP35 ATP-binding proteins family. The encoded protein is required for the assembly of the respiratory chain NADH dehydrogenase (complex I), an oligomeric enzymatic complex located in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Mutations in this gene cause mitochondrial complex I deficiency. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

GeneCards Summary for NUBPL Gene

NUBPL (Nucleotide Binding Protein-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NUBPL include mitochondrial complex i deficiency. GO annotations related to this gene include 4 iron, 4 sulfur cluster binding. An important paralog of this gene is NUBP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NUBPL Gene
