|Purification||Immunogen affinity purified.|
|Cross Reactivity||No cross reactivity with other proteins|
|Storage||At -20˚C for one year. After r˚Constitution, at 4˚C for one month. It˚Can also be aliquotted and stored frozen at -20˚C for a longer time.Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the ribonucleoside diphosphate reductase small chain family.|
|Function||Plays a pivotal role in cell survival by repairing damaged DNA in a p53/TP53-dependent manner. Supplies deoxyribonucleotides for DNA repair in cells arrested at G1 or G2. Contains an iron-tyrosyl free radical center required for catalysis. Forms an active ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) complex with RRM1 which is expressed both in resting and proliferating cells in response to DNA damage.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Translocates from cytoplasm to nucleus in response to DNA damage|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed at a high level in skeletal muscle and at a weak level in thymus. Expressed in epithelial dysplasias and squamous cell carcinoma|

RRM2B(Ribonucleotide Reductase, M2 B), also known as P53R2, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the RRM2B gene. Tanaka et al.(2000) mapped the p53R2 gene to chromosome 8q23.1 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Tanaka et al.(2000) found that expression of p53R2, but not R2, was induced by ultraviolet and gamma-irradiation and adriamycin treatment in a wildtype p53-dependent manner. Induction of p53R2 in p53-deficient cells caused G2/M arrest and protected cells from death in response to adriamycin. Inhibition of endogenous p53R2 expression in cells that had an intact p53-dependent DNA damage checkpoint reduced ribonucleotide reductase activity, DNA repair, and cell survival after exposure to various genotoxins.
