GeneCards Summary for MSRB2 Gene
MSRB2 (Methionine Sulfoxide Reductase B2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and peptide-methionine (R)-S-oxide reductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MSRB3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MSRB2 Gene
Methionine-sulfoxide reductase that specifically reduces methionine (R)-sulfoxide back to methionine. While in many cases, methionine oxidation is the result of random oxidation following oxidative stress, methionine oxidation is also a post-translational modification that takes place on specific residue. Upon oxidative stress, may play a role in the preservation of mitochondrial integrity by decreasing the intracellular reactive oxygen species build-up through its scavenging role, hence contributing to cell survival and protein maintenance.
