Previous HGNC Symbols for SQOR Gene
The protein encoded by this gene may function in mitochondria to catalyze the conversion of sulfide to persulfides, thereby decreasing toxic concencrations of sulfide. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2012]
GeneCards Summary for SQOR Gene
SQOR (Sulfide Quinone Oxidoreductase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sulfur amino acid metabolism and Sulfur metabolism. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000260170.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SQOR Gene
Catalyzes the oxidation of hydrogen sulfide with the help of a quinone, such as ubiquinone, giving rise to thiosulfate and ultimately to sulfane (molecular sulfur) atoms. Requires an additional electron acceptor; can use sulfite, sulfide or cyanide (in vitro).
