Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ENOX1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is involved in plasma membrane electron transport pathways. The encoded protein has both a hydroquinone (NADH) oxidase activity and a protein disulfide-thiol interchange activity. The two activities cycle with a periodicity of 24 minutes, with one activity being at its peak when the other is at its lowest. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]
GeneCards Summary for ENOX1 Gene
ENOX1 (Ecto-NOX Disulfide-Thiol Exchanger 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENOX2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ENOX1 Gene
Probably acts as a terminal oxidase of plasma electron transport from cytosolic NAD(P)H via hydroquinones to acceptors at the cell surface. Hydroquinone oxidase activity alternates with a protein disulfide-thiol interchange/oxidoreductase activity which may control physical membrane displacements associated with vesicle budding or cell enlargement. The activities oscillate with a period length of 24 minutes and play a role in control of the ultradian cellular biological clock.
