RFESD, also known as Rieske domain-containing protein, is a 157 amino acid protein that binds one 2Fe-2S cluster per subunit. Involved in metal ion binding, RFESD contains one Rieske domain. The RFESD gene is conserved in chimpanzee, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken and zebrafish, and maps to human chromosome 5q15. Chromosome 5 makes up approximately 6% of the human genome and contains 181 million base pairs, which encode 1,000 genes. Chromosome 5 is associated with Cockayne syndrome through the ERCC8 gene and familial adenomatous polyposis through the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) tumor suppressor gene. Treacher Collins syndrome is caused by insertions or deletions within the TCOF1 gene and is also associated with chromosome 5. Deletion of 5q or chromosome 5 altogether is common in therapy-related acute myelogenous leukemias and myelodysplastic syndrome.
