Summaries for OASL Gene

GeneCards Summary for OASL Gene

OASL (2'-5'-Oligoadenylate Synthetase-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OASL include west nile encephalitis. Among its related pathways are Interferon Signaling and Interferon Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include double-stranded RNA binding and 2-5-oligoadenylate synthetase activity. An important paralog of this gene is OAS2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OASL Gene

  • Does not have 2-5-OAS activity, but can bind double-stranded RNA. Displays antiviral activity against encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) via an alternative antiviral pathway independent of RNase L.
