Ribonuclease T2-like (IPR001568)

Short name: RNase_T2-like

Family relationships



The fungal ribonucleases T2 from Aspergillus oryzae, M from Aspergillus saitoi and Rh from Rhizopus niveus are structurally and functionally related 30 Kd glycoproteins [PMID: 2229029] that cleave the 3'-5' internucleotide linkage of RNA via a nucleotide 2',3'-cyclic phosphate intermediate (EC:

Two histidines residues have been shown [PMID: 2298207, PMID: 1633875] to be involved in the catalytic mechanism of RNase T2 and Rh. These residues and the region around them are highly conserved in a number of other RNAses that have been found to be evolutionary related to these fungal enzymes.
