From NCBI Gene:
Cytochrome c oxidase (COX), the terminal component of the mitochondrial respiratory chain, catalyzes the electron transfer from reduced cytochrome c to oxygen. This component is a heteromeric complex consisting of 3 catalytic subunits encoded by mitochondrial genes and multiple structural subunits encoded by nuclear genes. The mitochondrially-encoded subunits function in electron transfer, and the nuclear-encoded subunits may function in the regulation and assembly of the complex. This nuclear gene encodes subunit VIIb, which is highly similar to bovine COX VIIb protein and is found in all tissues. This gene may have several pseudogenes on chromosomes 1, 2, 20 and 22.

This protein is one of the nuclear-coded polypeptide chains of cytochrome c oxidase, the terminal oxidase in mitochondrial electron transport. Plays a role in proper central nervous system (CNS) development in vertebrates.

- Linear skin defects with multiple congenital anomalies 2
Linear skin defects with multiple congenital anomalies 2 (LSDMCA2): A distinct form of aplasia cutis congenita presenting as multiple linear skin defects on the face and neck associated with poor growth, microcephaly, and facial dysmorphism. Additional features include intellectual disability, nail dystrophy, short stature and cardiac abnormalities. [MIM:300887]
