    basic FUNCTION
  • p47-phox (NCF1), oxygen dependent mechanism of phagocytosis
  • reduction of oxygen to O-2 at the expense of NADPH, the O2-generated is the precursor of potent oxidant used to kill the invading microorganisms (electron transfer from NADPH to molecular oxygen)
  • mediating formation of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) which play an important role in host defense and autoimmunity (Greve 2008)
  • novel role of NCF1 subunit beyond and independent of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase activity as a regulator of cortactin and adaptive cytoskeletal remodeling, leading to a paradoxically enhanced susceptibility to biomechanical stress and heart failure
  • NCF1 and RAC2 accumulate only transiently at the phagosome at the onset of NADPH activity and detach from the phagosome before the end of ROS production
  • is a key regulatory subunit of NADPH oxidase
    a component
  • component of NADPH oxidase system cypb245
  • forming a cytosolic precomplex with NCF2 and NCF4
  • component of an intracellular complex made of CYBB, CYBA, NCF2, NCF4 in unstimulated endothelial cells
  • component of the leukocyte NADPH oxidase complex mediating formation of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI)(Greve 2008)
    small molecule
  • binding by its SH3 domain to both CYBA and NCF2
  • is essential for direct regulatory T cell mediated suppression of CD4+ effector T cells
  • NMRAL1 regulates NCF1 through inhibition of NFKB activity
  • CYBB activation requires membrane translocation of the NCF1 subunit and is linked to heart failure
  • CYBB, modulated at least in part by NCF1, mediates early stage compensatory vascular collateral development via a process dependent upon peroxide generation
  • ANGPT1 requires oxidant signaling through NCF1 to promote endothelial barrier defense
  • TLR8, is involved in priming of human neutrophil ROS production by inducing the phosphorylation of NCF1 and MAPK14 and PIN1 is also involved in this process
  • NCF1 is the key regulatory component of the phagocytic NADPH oxidase 2 (CYBB) complex
