|Official Full Name||methionyl aminopeptidase 2|
|Background||This gene is a member of the methionyl aminopeptidase family and encodes a protein that binds 2 cobalt or manganese ions. This protein functions both by protecting the alpha subunit of eukaryotic initiation factor 2 from inhibitory phosphorylation and by removing the amino-terminal methionine residue from nascent protein. Increased expression of this gene is associated with various forms of cancer and the anti-cancer drugs fumagillin and ovalicin inhibit the protein by irreversibly binding to its active site. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 2.|
|Synonyms||METAP2; methionyl aminopeptidase 2; methionine aminopeptidase 2; MAP2; MNPEP; p67; Peptidase M; MAP 2; metAP 2; peptidase M 2; eIF-2-associated p67 homolog; initiation factor 2-associated 67 kDa glycoprotein; p67eIF2|
