      Background Information2-5A-dependent ribonuclease (UniProt: Q05823; also known as 2-5A-dependent RNase, Ribonuclease 4, Ribonuclease L, RNase L) is encoded by the RNASEL (also known as RNS4) gene (Gene ID: 6041) in human. RNAse L is a virally induced endoribonuclease that functions in the interferon antiviral response. It is highly expressed in spleen and thymus followed by prostate, testis, uterus, small intestine, colon, and peripheral blood leukocytes. It is present in cells in a latent form and requires short 5 - phosphorylated, 2-5A for its activity. Activation of RNAse L results in inhibition of viral proliferation. It mediates its antiviral effects through a combination of direct cleavage of single-stranded viral RNAs, inhibition of protein synthesis through the degradation of rRNA, induction of apoptosis, and induction of other antiviral genes. Activation of RNAse L has also been shown to degrade RNA in a manganese or magnesium dependent process. It has a relatively broad specificity for cleaving single-stranded RNA but prefers UU and UA dinucleotides. RNase-mediated apoptosis results from a JNK-dependent stress-response pathway leading to cytochrome c release from mitochondria and caspase-dependent apoptosis. RNAse L contains nine ankyrin repeats, which constitute the N-terminus 2-5A binding domain. It also has a C6-type zinc finger domain (aa 395-444). Its ribonuclease domain is located in the C-terminus and a single active nuclease domain in a dimer is shown to be sufficient for its ribonuclease activity. Mutations in RNASEL gene are reported in cancers of the prostate and other tissues. (Ref.: Wang, L., et al. (1995). Clin. Can. Res. 1 (11); 1421-1428; Dong, B., and Silverman, RH (1995). J. Biol.
