NADPH oxidases

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(NOX1, NOX2)

Enzymes that catalyse the transfer of electrons from NADPH to molecular oxygen to generate reactive oxygen species (ROS). The NADPH oxidase activator, NOXA1 (p51-NOX, 476 aa), can stimulate both NOX1 and NOX2 (p91phox, 570 aa). The NADPH oxidase organizer (NOXO1, p41-NOX, 371 aa) targets NOX activators to NOX and to different subcellular compartments. See phox.
