UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MT-RNR2 Gene

  • Plays a role as a neuroprotective factor. Protects against death induced by multiple different familial Alzheimer disease genes and beta amyloid proteins in Alzheimer disease. Suppresses apoptosis by binding to BAX and preventing the translocation of BAX from the cytosol to mitochondria. Binds to IGFBP3 and specifically blocks IGFBP3-induced cell death Induces chemotaxis of mononuclear phagocytes via FPR2. Reduces the aggregation and fibrillary formation by suppressing the effect of APP on mononuclear phagocytes and acts by competitively inhibiting the access of FPRL1 to APP.

Function for MT-RNR2 Gene

Molecular function for MT-RNR2 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Plays a role as a neuroprotective factor. Protects against death induced by multiple different familial Alzheimer disease genes and beta amyloid proteins in Alzheimer disease. Suppresses apoptosis by binding to BAX and preventing the translocation of BAX from the cytosol to mitochondria. Binds to IGFBP3 and specifically blocks IGFBP3-induced cell death Induces chemotaxis of mononuclear phagocytes via FPR2. Reduces the aggregation and fibrillary formation by suppressing the effect of APP on mononuclear phagocytes and acts by competitively inhibiting the access of FPRL1 to APP.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction: Release is regulated by intracellular mechanism. The intracellular level is regulated by TRIM11 through proteasome-mediated degradation.
