Entrez Gene Summary for VKORC1 Gene

  • This gene encodes the catalytic subunit of the vitamin K epoxide reductase complex, which is responsible for the reduction of inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K in the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Vitamin K is a required co-factor for carboxylation of glutamic acid residues by vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxylase in blood-clotting enzymes. Allelic variation in this gene is associated with vitamin k-dependent clotting factors combined deficiency of 2, and increased resistance or sensitivity to warfarin, an inhibitor of vitamin K epoxide reductase. Pseudogenes of this gene are located on chromosomes 1 and X. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]

GeneCards Summary for VKORC1 Gene

VKORC1 (Vitamin K Epoxide Reductase Complex, Subunit 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VKORC1 include coumarin resistance and vitamin k antagonists toxicity or dose selection. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. GO annotations related to this gene include quinone binding and vitamin-K-epoxide reductase (warfarin-sensitive) activity. An important paralog of this gene is VKORC1L1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VKORC1 Gene

  • Involved in vitamin K metabolism. Catalytic subunit of the vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKOR) complex which reduces inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K. Vitamin K is required for the gamma-carboxylation of various proteins, including clotting factors, and is required for normal blood coagulation, but also for normal bone development.

VKOR1_HUMAN :
  • The number of transmembrane domains and the membrane topology are controversial; supporting evidence is available both for models with three transmembrane domains (PubMed:15716279 and PubMed:22923610) and four transmembrane domains (PubMed:20696932 and PubMed:20978134). According to PubMed:15716279 and PubMed:22923610 the N-terminus of the protein is in the endoplasmic reticulum lumen, while the C-terminus is in the cytosol, which is in favor of three transmembrane domains. According to PubMed:20696932, both N-terminus and C-terminus are in the cytosol, indicating the presence of four transmembrane domains. Besides, the 3D-structure of a bacterial ortholog shows four transmembrane domains. Moreover, proteins that reside in the endoplasmic reticulum lumen can catalyze the reduction of the active site cysteines, possibly via Cys-43 and Cys-51 (PubMed:20696932 and PubMed:20978134), but less efficiently than the synthetic compound dithiothreitol (in vitro). Location of Cys-43 and Cys-51 in the endoplasmic reticulum lumen would be in agreement with four transmembrane domains. Again, these data are controversial, and papers do not agree on the effects of mutating Cys-43 and Cys-51, probably because of differences in the assay systems
  • Belongs to the VKOR family.
