  Domain Name: PX_NoxO1
The phosphoinositide binding Phox Homology domain of Nox Organizing protein 1. The PX domain is a phosphoinositide (PI) binding module present in many proteins with diverse functions such as cell signaling, vesicular trafficking, protein sorting, and lipid modification, among others. Nox Organizing protein 1 (NoxO1) is a critical regulator of enzyme kinetics of the nonphagocytic NADPH oxidase Nox1, which catalyzes the transfer of electrons from NADPH to molecular oxygen to form superoxide. Nox1 is expressed in colon, stomach, uterus, prostate, and vascular smooth muscle cells. NoxO1, a homolog of the p47phox subunit of phagocytic NADPH oxidase, is involved in targeting activator subunits (such as NoxA1) to Nox1. It is co-localized with Nox1 in the membranes of resting cells and directs the subcellular localization of Nox1. The PX domain is involved in targeting of proteins to PI-enriched membranes, and may also be involved in protein-protein interaction. The PX domain of NoxO1 preferentially binds phosphatidylinositol-3,5-bisphosphate [PI(3,5)P2], PI5P, and PI4P.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
