Technical Data
CYBB (Cytochrome b-245 Heavy Chain, CGD91-phox, Cytochrome b(558) Subunit beta, Cytochrome b558 Subunit beta, Heme-binding Membrane Glycoprotein gp91phox, NADPH Oxidase 2, Neutrophil Cytochrome b 91kD Polypeptide, Superoxide-generating NADPH Oxidase Heavy
The integral membrane protein flavocytochrome b (Cyt b), a heterodimer formed by a 91kD glycoprotein (heavy chain) and a 22kD polypeptide (light chain), is the catalytic core of the phagocyte NADPH oxidase and generates superoxide which plays a critical role in host defense. NADPH oxidase is a central well characterized component of the innate immune response against fungal and bacterial infections. Recent research also offers new insight into a novel role for this oxidase in the coordination of the adaptive immune response. CYBB deficiency is one of five described biochemical defects associated with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). In this disorder, there is decreased activity of phagocyte NADPH oxidase; neutrophils are able to phagocytize bacteria but cannot kill them in the phagocytic vacuoles. The cause of the killing defect is an inability to increase the cell's respiration and consequent failure to deliver activated oxygen into the phagocytic vacuole.
