Previous HGNC Symbols for TDP2 Gene
This gene encodes a member of a superfamily of divalent cation-dependent phosphodiesterases. The encoded protein associates with CD40, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-75 and TNF receptor associated factors (TRAFs), and inhibits nuclear factor-kappa-B activation. This protein has sequence and structural similarities with APE1 endonuclease, which is involved in both DNA repair and the activation of transcription factors. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TDP2 Gene
TDP2 (Tyrosyl-DNA Phosphodiesterase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TDP2 include Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Autosomal Recessive 23 and Paralytic Poliomyelitis. Among its related pathways are DNA Double-Strand Break Repair and DNA Double Strand Break Response. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription corepressor activity and single-stranded DNA binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TDP2 Gene
DNA repair enzyme that can remove a variety of covalent adducts from DNA through hydrolysis of a 5-phosphodiester bond, giving rise to DNA with a free 5 phosphate. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of dead-end complexes between DNA and the topoisomerase 2 (TOP2) active site tyrosine residue. The 5-tyrosyl DNA phosphodiesterase activity can enable the repair of TOP2-induced DNA double-strand breaks/DSBs without the need for nuclease activity, creating a clean DSB with 5-phosphate termini that are ready for ligation. Thereby, protects the transcription of many genes involved in neurological development and maintenance from the abortive activity of TOP2. Hydrolyzes 5-phosphoglycolates on protruding 5 ends on DSBs due to DNA damage by radiation and free radicals. Has preference for single-stranded DNA or duplex DNA with a 4 base pair overhang as substrate. Acts as a regulator of ribosome biogenesis following stress. Has also 3-tyrosyl DNA phosphodiesterase activity, but less efficiently and much slower than TDP1. Constitutes the major if not only 5-tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase in cells. Also acts as an adapter by participating in the specific activation of MAP3K7/TAK1 in response to TGF-beta: associates with components of the TGF-beta receptor-TRAF6-TAK1 signaling module and promotes their ubiquitination dependent complex formation. Involved in non-canonical TGF-beta induced signaling routes. May also act as a negative regulator of ETS1 and may inhibit NF-kappa-B activation.
(Microbial infection) Also acts as a 5-tyrosyl-RNA phosphodiesterase following picornavirus infection: its activity is hijacked by picornavirus and acts by specifically cleaving the protein-RNA covalent linkage generated during the viral genomic RNA replication steps of a picornavirus infection, without impairing the integrity of viral RNA.
