This gene is one of two human genes similar to the yeastgene dph2. The yeast gene was identified by its ability tocomplement a diphthamide mutant strain, and thus probably functionsin diphthamide biosynthesis. Diphthamide is a post-translationallymodified histidine residue present in elongation factor 2 (EF2)that is the target of diphtheria toxin ADP-ribosylation. Twotranscript variants encoding different isoforms have been found forthis gene.
