Summaries for PDSS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDSS1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an enzyme that elongates the prenyl side-chain of coenzyme Q, or ubiquinone, one of the key elements in the respiratory chain. The gene product catalyzes the formation of all trans-polyprenyl pyrophosphates from isopentyl diphosphate in the assembly of polyisoprenoid side chains, the first step in coenzyme Q biosynthesis. The protein may be peripherally associated with the inner mitochondrial membrane, though no transit peptide has been definitively identified to date. Defects in this gene are a cause of coenzyme Q10 deficiency. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PDSS1 Gene

PDSS1 (Prenyl (Decaprenyl) Diphosphate Synthase, Subunit 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PDSS1 include pdss1-related coenzyme q10 deficiency and deafness - encephaloneuropathy - obesity - valvulopathy. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Terpenoid backbone biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and trans-octaprenyltranstransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PDSS2.
