GeneCards Summary for APOBEC2 Gene
APOBEC2 (Apolipoprotein B MRNA Editing Enzyme Catalytic Subunit 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with APOBEC2 include Immunodeficiency With Hyper-Igm, Type 2. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and mRNA Editing- C to U Conversion. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and cytidine deaminase activity. An important paralog of this gene is APOBEC3F.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for APOBEC2 Gene
Probable C to U editing enzyme whose physiological substrate is not yet known. Does not display detectable apoB mRNA editing. Has a low intrinsic cytidine deaminase activity. May play a role in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression through the process of active DNA demethylation.
