Gene: AIFM1 (apoptosis inducing factor mitochondria associated 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AIFM1
Name: apoptosis inducing factor mitochondria associated 1
RGD ID: 731380
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity; FAD binding activity; and NAD(P)H oxidase H2O2-forming activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process; mitochondrion organization; and neuron differentiation. Localizes to mitochondrial intermembrane space and nucleus. Implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease X-linked recessive 4; X-linked deafness 5; and combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency 6. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease and dilated cardiomyopathy 1H.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
