Secondary Information

Protein Function It catalyzes reduction of coenzyme Q/ubiquinone-10 to ubiquinol-10 at the plasma membrane. It is a NAD(P)H-dependent oxidoreductase and is involved in response against cellular oxidative stress.
Biochemical Properties Binds 6-hydroxy-FAD non-covalently.
PTMs myristoylation,lipidation
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions NA
DisProt Annotation
TM Helix Prediction 1TMH; (11-33)
Significance of PTMs N-terminus of FSP1 contains a canonical myristoylation motif and myristoylation is a lipid modification that promotes target protein binding to cell membranes.Myristoylation at the N-terminus of the FSP1 protein facilitates the localization of FSP1 to the plasma membrane, which is critical for its ferroptosis-inhibitory activity
