Disease relevance of sdhB


High impact information on sdhB

  • The sdhB structural gene encodes a polypeptide of Mr26637 that is strikingly homologous with the iron-sulphur protein subunit of fumarate reductase (38% identity, increasing to 58% when conservative changes are included) [1].
  • The sdhB structural gene comprises 711 base pairs (237 codons, excluding the translational initiator and terminator) [1].
  • Together with the iron-sulphur protein gene (sdhB) these genes form an operon (sdhCDAB) situated between the citrate synthase gene (gltA) and the 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex genes (sucAB): gltA-sdhCDAB-sucAB [2].
