Protein Information
Name METAP2 {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03175}
Function Cotranslationally removes the N-terminal methionine from nascent proteins. The N-terminal methionine is often cleaved when the second residue in the primary sequence is small and uncharged (Met-Ala-, Cys, Gly, Pro, Ser, Thr, or Val). The catalytic activity of human METAP2 toward Met-Val peptides is consistently two orders of magnitude higher than that of METAP1, suggesting that it is responsible for processing proteins containing N- terminal Met-Val and Met-Thr sequences in vivo.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03175, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21537465}. Note=About 30% of expressed METAP2 associates with polysomes

This gene is a member of the methionyl aminopeptidasefamily and encodes a protein that binds 2 cobalt or manganese ions.This protein functions both by protecting the alpha subunit ofeukaryotic initiation factor 2 from inhibitory phosphorylation andby removing the amino-terminal methionine residue from nascentprotein. Increased expression of this gene is associated withvarious forms of cancer and the anti-cancer drugs fumagillin andovalicin inhibit the protein by irreversibly binding to its activesite. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 2.
