YBEY ybeY metalloendoribonuclease

Gene ID: 54059, updated on 28-Jun-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: C21orf57


This gene encodes a highly conserved metalloprotein. A similar protein in bacteria acts as an endoribonuclease, and is thought to function in ribosomal RNA maturation and ribosome assembly. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
