Atypical kinase COQ8A, mitochondrial

Protein Summary
Description
Atypical kinase involved in the biosynthesis of coenzyme Q, also named ubiquinone, an essential lipid-soluble electron transporter for aerobic cellular respiration (PubMed:25498144, PubMed:21296186, PubMed:25540914, PubMed:27499294). Its substrate specificity is unclear: does not show any protein kinase activity (PubMed:25498144, PubMed:27499294). Probably acts as a small molecule kinase, possibly a lipid kinase that phosphorylates a prenyl lipid in the ubiquinone biosynthesis pathway, as suggested by its ability to bind coenzyme Q lipid intermediates (PubMed:25498144, PubMed:27499294). Shows an unusual selectivity for binding ADP over ATP (PubMed:25498144). This gene encodes a mitochondrial protein similar to yeast ABC1, which functions in an electron-transferring membrane protein complex in the respiratory chain. It is not related to the family of ABC transporter proteins. Expression of this gene is induced by the tumor suppressor p53 and in response to DNA damage, and inhibiting its ...more
