Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Nucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase; mediates extracellular nucleotide phosphate hydrolysis along with Npp1p and Pho5p; activity and expression enhanced during conditions of phosphate starvation; involved in spore wall assembly; SWAT-GFP and mCherry fusion proteins localize to the endoplasmic reticulum; NPP2 has a paralog, NPP1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; npp1 npp2 double mutant exhibits reduced dityrosine fluorescence relative to single mutants [Source:SGD;Acc:S000000742]


Chromosome V: 124,737-126,218 reverse strand.
