Mammalian cytochrome c oxidase (COX) catalyzes the transfer of reducing equivalents from cytochrome c to molecular oxygen and pumps protons across the inner mitochondrial membrane. In yeast, 2 related COX assembly genes, SCO1 and SCO2 (synthesis of cytochrome c oxidase), enable subunits 1 and 2 to be incorporated into the holoprotein. This gene is the human homolog to the yeast SCO1 gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SCO1 Gene
SCO1 (SCO1, Cytochrome C Oxidase Assembly Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SCO1 include Mitochondrial Complex Iv Deficiency and Fatal Infantile Cytochrome C Oxidase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins. and Copper homeostasis. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and antioxidant activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCO2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCO1 Gene
Thought to play a role in cellular copper homeostasis, mitochondrial redox signaling or insertion of copper into the active site of COX.
