GeneCards Summary for CTDSP2 Gene
CTDSP2 (CTD Small Phosphatase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Regulation of cytoplasmic and nuclear SMAD2/3 signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatase activity and CTD phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CTDSPL.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTDSP2 Gene
Preferentially catalyzes the dephosphorylation of Ser-5 within the tandem 7 residue repeats in the C-terminal domain (CTD) of the largest RNA polymerase II subunit POLR2A. Negatively regulates RNA polymerase II transcription, possibly by controlling the transition from initiation/capping to processive transcript elongation. Recruited by REST to neuronal genes that contain RE-1 elements, leading to neuronal gene silencing in non-neuronal cells. May contribute to the development of sarcomas.
