Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NDUFA10 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a component of 42 kDa complex I, the first enzyme complex in the electron transport chain of mitochondria. This protein has NADH dehydrogenase activity and oxidoreductase activity. It transfers electrons from NADH to the respiratory chain. A mutation in this gene was found in an individual with Leigh syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
GeneCards Summary for NDUFA10 Gene
NDUFA10 (NADH:Ubiquinone Oxidoreductase Subunit A10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NDUFA10 include Mitochondrial Complex I Deficiency, Nuclear Type 22 and Leigh Syndrome With Leukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins. and Pathways of neurodegeneration - multiple diseases. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) activity and nucleoside kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DCK.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NDUFA10 Gene
Accessory subunit of the mitochondrial membrane respiratory chain NADH dehydrogenase (Complex I), that is believed not to be involved in catalysis. Complex I functions in the transfer of electrons from NADH to the respiratory chain. The immediate electron acceptor for the enzyme is believed to be ubiquinone.
