Secondary Information

Protein Function involved in the pathway ubiquinone biosynthesis.
Biochemical Properties Binds 2 iron ions per subunit.Catalyzes the hydroxylation of 2-polyprenyl-3-methyl-6-methoxy-1,4-benzoquinol (DMQH2) during ubiquinone biosynthesis. Has also a structural role in the COQ enzyme complex, stabilizing other COQ polypeptides.
PTMs Phosphorylation
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions NA
DisProt Annotation
TM Helix Prediction No TM helices
Significance of PTMs Coq7p remains phosphorylated in fermentative conditions and becomes dephosphorylated when respiratory metabolism is induced.
