  • Function

    Isoform 1: FAD-dependent sulfhydryl oxidase. Within the mitochondrial intermembrane space, participates in a chain of disulfide exchange reactions with MIA40, that generate disulfide bonds in a number of resident proteins with twin Cx3C and Cx9C motifs.
    Isoform 2: May act as an autocrine hepatotrophic growth factor promoting liver regeneration.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed. Highest expression in the testis and liver and low expression in the muscle.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in GFER are a cause of mitochondrial progressive myopathy with congenital cataract hearing loss and developmental delay (MPMCHD) [MIM:613076]; also called combined mitochondrial complex deficiency.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 ERV/ALR sulfhydryl oxidase domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Mitochondrion intermembrane space and Cytoplasm. Secreted.

  • ICC/IF image of ab36376 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab36376, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% PFA fixed (10 min) HepG2 and MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml, and in 100% methanol fixed (5 min) MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
