NADH dehydrogenase [ubiquinone] 1 beta subcomplex subunit 8, mitochondrial is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NDUFB8 gene.[1][2]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of NDUFB8 function. A conditional knockout mouse line called Ndufb8tm1a(EUCOMM)Wtsi was generated at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute [3]. Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen[4] to determine the effects of deletion.[5][6][7][8] Additional screens performed: - In-depth immunological phenotyping[9]
