Detailed entry information

Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0002503
UniProt IDO00584
Primary gene name(s)RNASET2
Synonym gene name(s)RNASE6PL
Protein nameRibonuclease T2
Protein functionHas ribonuclease activity, with higher activity at acidic pH. Probably is involved in lysosomal degradation of ribosomal RNA, By similarity. Probably plays a role in cellular RNA catabolism. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16620762, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19525954, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22735700}.
Subcellular locationSecreted. Lysosome lumen. Endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Note=Subcellular fractionation of transfected ovarian cancer cells reveals full-length RNASET2 in the endoplasmic reticulum fraction and the 2 smaller RNASET2 proteolytic products in the lysosome fraction.
