Entrez Gene Summary for DNASE2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the DNase family. The protein, located in the lysosome, hydrolyzes DNA under acidic conditions and mediates the breakdown of DNA during erythropoiesis and apoptosis. Two codominant alleles have been characterized, DNASE2*L (low activity) and DNASE2*H (high activity), that differ at one nucleotide in the promoter region. The DNASE2*H allele is represented in this record. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DNASE2 Gene

DNASE2 (Deoxyribonuclease II, Lysosomal) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Lysosome and Clathrin derived vesicle budding. GO annotations related to this gene include deoxyribonuclease II activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNASE2B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNASE2 Gene

  • Hydrolyzes DNA under acidic conditions with a preference for double-stranded DNA. Plays a major role in the degradation of nuclear DNA in cellular apoptosis during development. Necessary for proper fetal development and for definitive erythropoiesis in fetal liver, where it degrades nuclear DNA expelled from erythroid precursor cells
