Gene: Cox8a (cytochrome c oxidase subunit 8A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cox8a
Name: cytochrome c oxidase subunit 8A
Description: Predicted to have cytochrome-c oxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in electron transport chain and proton transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrion and respiratory chain complex IV. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cytochrome-c oxidase deficiency disease. Orthologous to human COX8A (cytochrome c oxidase subunit 8A); PARTICIPATES IN Alzheimer's disease pathway; Huntington's disease pathway; oxidative phosphorylation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cytochrome c oxidase polypeptide VIII-liver; cytochrome c oxidase subunit 8-2; cytochrome c oxidase subunit 8A, mitochondrial; cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIIIa; cytochrome c oxidase, subunit VIIIa
