|Other Names||m7GpppN-mRNA hydrolase, Nucleoside diphosphate-linked moiety X motif 20, Nudix motif 20, mRNA-decapping enzyme 2, hDpc, DCP2, NUDT20|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9182c was selected from the Center region of human DCP2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Decapping metalloenzyme that catalyzes the cleavage of the cap structure on mRNAs (PubMed:12417715, PubMed:12218187, PubMed:12923261, PubMed:21070968). Removes the 7-methyl guanine cap structure from mRNA molecules, yielding a 5'-phosphorylated mRNA fragment and 7m-GDP (PubMed:12486012, PubMed:12923261, PubMed:21070968). Necessary for the degradation of mRNAs, both in normal mRNA turnover and in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (PubMed:14527413). Plays a role in replication-dependent histone mRNA degradation (PubMed:18172165). Has higher activity towards mRNAs that lack a poly(A) tail (PubMed:21070968). Has no activity towards a cap structure lacking an RNA moiety (PubMed:21070968). Blocks autophagy in nutrient-rich conditions by repressing the expression of ATG-related genes through degration of their transcripts (PubMed:26098573).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, P-body. Nucleus. Note=Predominantly cytoplasmic, in processing bodies (PB) (PubMed:15273322). A minor amount is nuclear (PubMed:15273322).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in brain and testis. Not detected in heart (at protein level).|

DCP2 is a key component of an mRNA-decapping complex required for removal of the 5-prime cap from mRNA prior to its degradation from the 5-prime end (Fenger-Gron et al., 2005).
