Secondary Information

Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells typically secreted from the cell, or localized to internal compartments such as the lysosome or vacuole
Protein Function Endoribonucleases that cleave single stranded RNA through a 2′,3′–cyclic phosphate intermediate, producing mono- or oligonucleotides with a terminal 3′-phosphate; scavenger of nucleic acids; degradates self- RNA; modulates host immune responses and serve as extra- or intracellular cytotoxins
Biochemical Properties Transferase type RNAses; more broadly distributed; optimal pH of activity of many T2 ribonucleases is between 4 and 5; acidic activity of T2 enzymes is consistent with their localization to the vacuole or lysosome; T2 ribonucleases generally cleave at all four bases; exhibit low pH stability; divalent cations like Cu2+, Zn2+, and Hg2+ are potent inhibitors and in a few cases Mg2+, Ca2+, and Cd2+ were also found to be inhibitory
Significance in milk mediate an extracellular protective role; can participate in the host response against infection both by direct antimicrobial action and immune response activation; induces cytokine release in leukocytes
PTMs glycosylated in eukaryotic cells- glucose, mannose, glucosamine, galactose and xylose
