ribonucleotide reductase M2 B (TP53 inducible)

On chromosome: 8q23.1
Known also as: P53R2; MGC42116; MGC102856; DKFZp686M05248;

NCBI Gene ID: 50484
NCBI Ensembl Id: ENSG00000048392
MIM Id: (from NCBI OMIM database) 604712
Species: Homo sapiens

This gene encodes the small subunit of a p53-inducible ribonucleotide reductase. This heterotetrameric enzyme catalyzes the conversion of ribonucleoside diphosphates to deoxyribonucleoside diphosphates. The product of this reaction is necessary for DNA synthesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal recessive mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, autosomal dominant progressive external ophthalmoplegia-5, and mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.
