Gene: PRPS2 (phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PRPS2
Name: phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase 2
Description: This gene encodes a phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase that plays a central role in the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines. The encoded protein catalyzes the synthesis of 5-phosphoribosyl 1-pyrophosphate from ATP and D-ribose 5-phosphate. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthase II; PPRibP synthetase; PRS-II; PRSII; ribose-phosphate diphosphokinase 2; ribose-phosphate pyrophosphokinase 2; testicular secretory protein Li 41
