Diphthamide is a unique posttranslationally modified histidine found only in translation elongation factor-2 (EEF2; MIM 130610). This modification is conserved from archaebacteria to humans and serves as the target for ADP-ribosylation and inactivation of EEF2 by diphtheria toxin (DT) and Pseudomonas exotoxin A. DPH4 is 1 of several enzymes involved in synthesis of diphthamide in EEF2 (Liu et al., 2004 [PubMed 15485916]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for DNAJC24 Gene
DNAJC24 (DnaJ Heat Shock Protein Family (Hsp40) Member C24) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAJC24 include Diphtheria and Aniridia 1. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ferrous iron binding and ATPase activator activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNAJC24 Gene
Stimulates the ATPase activity of several Hsp70-type chaperones. This ability is enhanced by iron-binding. The iron-bound form is redox-active and can function as electron carrier. Plays a role in the diphthamide biosynthesis, a post-translational modification of histidine which occurs in translation elongation factor 2 (EEF2) which can be ADP-ribosylated by diphtheria toxin and by Pseudomonas exotoxin A (Eta).
