Entrez Gene Summary for METAP1D Gene

  • The N-terminal methionine excision pathway is an essential process in which the N-terminal methionine is removed from many proteins, thus facilitating subsequent protein modification. In mitochondria, enzymes that catalyze this reaction are celled methionine aminopeptidases (MetAps, or MAPs; EC (Serero et al., 2003 [PubMed 14532271]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for METAP1D Gene

METAP1D (Methionyl Aminopeptidase Type 1D (Mitochondrial)) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include aminopeptidase activity and metalloexopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is METAP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for METAP1D Gene

  • 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). Requires deformylation of the N(alpha)-formylated initiator methionine before it can be hydrolyzed (By similarity). May play a role in colon tumorigenesis.

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.;
