Summaries for METAP1 Gene

GeneCards Summary for METAP1 Gene

METAP1 (Methionyl Aminopeptidase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include aminopeptidase activity and metalloexopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is METAP1D.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for METAP1 Gene

  • Cotranslationally removes the N-terminal methionine from nascent proteins. The N-terminal methionine is often cleaved when the second residue in the primary sequence is small and uncharged (Met-Ala-, Cys, Gly, Pro, Ser, Thr, or Val). Required for normal progression through the cell cycle.

Has a high-affinity and a low affinity metal-binding site. The true nature of the physiological cofactor is under debate. The enzyme is active with cobalt, zinc, manganese or divalent iron ions. Most likely, methionine aminopeptidases function as mononuclear Fe(2+)-metalloproteases under physiological conditions, and the catalytically relevant metal-binding site has been assigned to the histidine-containing high-affinity site.;
    Name=Na(+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:29101; Note=Binds 1 sodium ion per subunit. The sodium ion has a structural role.;
