Required for efficient ubiquinone (coenzyme Q) biosynthesis under aerobic conditions (PubMed:28559279, PubMed:30686758). UbiK is probably an accessory factor of Ubi enzymes and facilitates ubiquinone biosynthesis by acting as an assembly factor, a targeting factor, or both (PubMed:28559279). Dispensable for ubiquinone biosynthesis under anaerobiosis (PubMed:28559279).2 Publications

Component of the Ubi complex metabolon, which regroups five ubiquinone biosynthesis proteins (UbiE, UbiF, UbiG, UbiH and UbiI) and two accessory factors (UbiK and the lipid-binding protein UbiJ) (PubMed:30686758).

Interacts with the C-terminal part of UbiJ and forms a complex composed of 2 UbiK subunits and 1 UbiJ subunit. The UbiK-UbiJ complex interacts with palmitoleic acid (PubMed:28559279).

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i393A8D90E7F6ACCC
