DHX9

A gene on chromosome 1p25 that encodes a member of the Asp-Glu-Ala-His (DEAH)-motif-containing family of RNA helicases, which catalyse the ATP-dependent unwinding of double-stranded RNA and DNA-RNA complexes. DHX9 localises to both the nucleus and the cytoplasm, regulates transcription, and may be involved in the expression and nuclear export of retroviral RNA.

The uncoupling mechanisms that may be linked to the high resistance of some species to reoxygenation-derived oxidative stress by reducing ROS production include: 1) proton sinks that involve the UCP, the bacterial mitochondrial unspecific channels, or the PT pore (PTP) of mammals; and 2) the non-pumping alternative redox enzymes including a NADH-dehydrogenase type 2 (NDH2), the mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate-dehydrogenase (mtGPDH), and the AOX, each as an additional participant in a branched respiratory chain (Kadenbach 2003, Lesser 2006, Guerrero-Castillo et al.
