psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:DCP2 Antibody: The removal, or decapping, of eukaryotic mRNA is an important step in the degradation of mRNA. Decapping protein 2 (DCP2) is the major mRNA decapping enzyme in cells. It is a member of the Nudix hydrolases superfamily of proteins that predominantly catalyze the hydrolysis of small nucleoside diphosphate substrates linked to another moiety. DCP2 is widely expressed in multiple tissues at varying levels, with highest expression seen in testis and brain.
