|Function||Interferon-induced, dsRNA-activated antiviral enzyme which plays a critical role in cellular innate antiviral response. In addition, it may also play a role in other cellular processes such as apoptosis, cell growth, differentiation and gene regulation. Synthesizes higher oligomers of 2'-5'-oligoadenylates (2-5A) from ATP which then bind to the inactive monomeric form of ribonuclease L (RNase L) leading to its dimerization and subsequent activation. Activation of RNase L leads to degradation of cellular as well as viral RNA, resulting in the inhibition of protein synthesis, thus terminating viral replication. Can mediate the antiviral effect via the classical RNase L-dependent pathway or an alternative antiviral pathway independent of RNase L. The secreted form displays antiviral effect against vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), and encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) and stimulates the alternative antiviral pathway independent of RNase L.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion. Nucleus. Microsome. Endoplasmic reticulum. Secreted Note=Associated with different subcellular fractions such as mitochondrial, nuclear, and rough/smooth microsomal fractions|

OAS1 is an interferon inducible protein that may play a role in mediating resistance to virus infection, control of cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. It binds double-stranded RNA and polymerizes ATP into PPP(A2'P5'A)N oligomers, which activate the latent RNase L that, when activated, cleaves single-stranded RNAs. This protein is associated with different subcellular fractions such as mitochondrial, nuclear, and rough/smooth microsomal fractions.
