The protein encoded by this gene is similar in sequence to 3'/5' exonucleolytic subunits of the RNA exosome. The exosome is a large multimeric ribonucleotide complex responsible for degrading various RNA substrates. Several transcript variants, some protein-coding and some not, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]
GeneCards Summary for DIS3L2 Gene
DIS3L2 (DIS3 Like 3'-5' Exoribonuclease 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DIS3L2 include Perlman Syndrome and Wilms Tumor Predisposition. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and 3-5-exoribonuclease activity. An important paralog of this gene is DIS3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DIS3L2 Gene
3-5-exoribonuclease that specifically recognizes RNAs polyuridylated at their 3 end and mediates their degradation. Component of an exosome-independent RNA degradation pathway that mediates degradation of both mRNAs and miRNAs that have been polyuridylated by a terminal uridylyltransferase, such as ZCCHC11/TUT4. Mediates degradation of cytoplasmic mRNAs that have been deadenylated and subsequently uridylated at their 3. Mediates degradation of uridylated pre-let-7 miRNAs, contributing to the maintenance of embryonic stem (ES) cells. Essential for correct mitosis, and negatively regulates cell proliferation.
