Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
methionyl aminopeptidase 1

methionyl aminopeptidase , MetAP 1 , metap1-b , metap1-a ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
Putative methionine aminopeptidase

Protein Function :
Cotranslationally removes the N-terminal methionine from nascent proteins. The N-terminal methionine is often cleaved when the second residue in the primary sequence is small and uncharged (Met-Ala-, C...[+]
