Previous Symbols for QSOX1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that contains domains of thioredoxin and ERV1, members of two long-standing gene families. The gene expression is induced as fibroblasts begin to exit the proliferative cycle and enter quiescence, suggesting that this gene plays an important role in growth regulation. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for QSOX1 Gene
QSOX1 (Quiescin Q6 Sulfhydryl Oxidase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include protein disulfide isomerase activity and flavin-linked sulfhydryl oxidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is QSOX2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for QSOX1 Gene
Catalyzes the oxidation of sulfhydryl groups in peptide and protein thiols to disulfides with the reduction of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. May contribute to disulfide bond formation in a variety of secreted proteins. In fibroblasts, it may have tumor-suppressing capabilities being involved in growth regulation.
