26745464 In addition to Atox1, the human cytoplasm also contains Cu chaperones for loading of superoxide dismutase 1 (i.e. CCS) and cytochrome c oxidase in mitochondria (i.e. Cox17). [review]
26589182 Data show that the redox state of cytochrome c oxidase assembly protein 17 (Cox17), mitochondrial membrane transport protein Mia40 and superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) in the cytoplasm were directly observed with in-cell NMR spectroscopy.
26399480 Data suggest that Cox17 enhances the reactivity of some platinum/organoplatinum antineoplastic drugs but suppresses the reactivity of at least one platinum antineoplastic drug; glutathione modulates binding of platinum/organoplatinum drugs to Cox17.
24343031 CTR1 silencing increased the protein levels of copper chaperone ATOX1 and copper chaperone for superoxide dismutase 1 (CCS-1), but decreased copper chaperone for cytochrome c oxidase (COX17).
21816817 Functional role of two interhelical disulfide bonds in human Cox17 protein from a structural perspective.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19393246 the absence of Cox17 interferes with copper delivery to Cox2, but not to Cox1.
18458339 Cu(I)HCox17(2S-S), i.e., the copper-loaded form of the protein, can transfer simultaneously copper(I) and two electrons to the human cochaperone Sco1 (HSco1) in the oxidized state, i.e., with its metal-binding cysteines forming a disulfide bond.
17672825 XAS (X-ray absorption spectroscopy) determined that Cu4Cox17 contains a Cu4S6-type copper-thiolate cluster, which may provide safe storage of an excess of copper ions
17208454 Cox17 was studied with regard to its expression, purification, and formation of mixed disulfide adducts with sulfhydryl reagents.
