Summary of CYBA

This gene encodes a protein that is subunit of a group of proteins that forms an enzyme complex called NADPH oxidase, which plays an important role in the immune system. The complex adjust the inflammatory responses (R). 

The Function of CYBA

Critical component of the membrane-bound oxidase of phagocytes that generates superoxide. Associates with NOX3 to form a functional NADPH oxidase constitutively generating superoxide.
