Detailed summary for DCP2:

DCP2


Systematic name:
YNL118C
Description:
Catalytic subunit of the Dcp1p-Dcp2p decapping enzyme complex; removes the 5' cap structure from mRNAs prior to their degradation; nudix hydrolase family member; forms cytoplasmic foci upon DNA replication stress
Related info:
The truncated form of LSM4, leads to an accumulation of mRNAs and the phenotypic markers of apoptosis. Other mutations in the yeast mRNA-decapping pathway, such as those in the LSM1, LSM6, DCP1 and DCP2 genes, show increased mRNA stability and undergo apoptosis
