|Function||Prenyltransferase that mediates the formation of menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and coenzyme Q10. MK-4 is a vitamin K2 isoform present at high concentrations in the brain, kidney and pancreas, and is required for endothelial cell development. Mediates the conversion of phylloquinone (PK) into MK-4, probably by cleaving the side chain of phylloquinone (PK) to release 2- methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (menadione; K3) and then prenylating it with geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) to form MK-4. Also plays a role in cardiovascular development independently of MK-4 biosynthesis, by acting as a coenzyme Q10 biosyntetic enzyme: coenzyme Q10, also named ubiquinone, plays a important antioxidant role in the cardiovascular system. Mediates biosynthesis of coenzyme Q10 in the Golgi membrane, leading to protect cardiovascular tissues from NOS3/eNOS-dependent oxidative stress.|

The UbiA prenyltransferase domain containing 1 (UBIAD1) protein , also known as TERE1, was initially identified as a down-regulated gene in transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder (1). Recently it has been shown to bind the cholesterol carrier APOE and modulate cellular cholesterol levels (2). Mutations in the UBIAD1 gene can cause Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy, an autosomal dominant disease characterized by progressive opacification of the cornea resulting from the local accumulation of lipids (3).
