GeneCards Summary for MICAL2 Gene

MICAL2 (Microtubule Associated Monooxygenase, Calponin And LIM Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and flavin adenine dinucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is SMTNL2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MICAL2 Gene

  • Nuclear monooxygenase that promotes depolymerization of F-actin by mediating oxidation of specific methionine residues on actin and regulates the SRF signaling. Acts by modifying nuclear actin subunits through the addition of oxygen to form methionine-sulfoxide, leading to promote actin filament severing and prevent repolymerization. Acts as a key regulator of the SRF signaling pathway elicited by nerve growth factor and serum: mediates oxidation and subsequent depolymerization of nuclear actin, leading to increase MKL1/MRTF-A presence in the nucleus and promote SRF:MKL1/MRTF-A-dependent gene transcription. Does not activate SRF:MKL1/MRTF-A through RhoA.
