  1. We propose that RISC-mediated inhibition of specific sets of chromatin regulators is a primary mechanism for preserving embryonic stem cell pluripotency while inhibiting the onset of embryonic developmental programs

  2. Increased AGO2 was detected in autophagy-deficient ATG5 (show ATG5 Proteins)-/- and ATG16 (show ATG16L1 Proteins)-/- mouse embryonic fibroblast cells. Chemical agents and VacA toxin, which disrupt autophagy, increased AGO2 expression in MEFs, epithelial cells lines, and human monocytes.

  4. Results from the liver show that, siRNA targets 3'UTR and the coding sequence (CDs (show ABHD5 Proteins)) of endogenous genes in the presence Ago2 but in its absence, only 3'UTR-targeted siRNA-mediated knockdown are active with the help of Ago1 (show EIF2C1 Proteins) and Ago3 (show EIF2C3 Proteins).

  7. Mouse AGO2 binds tighter to miRNA targets than its RNAi cleavage product, even though the cleaved product contains more base pairs. By re-writing the rules for nucleic acid hybridization, Argonautes allow oligonucleotides to serve as specificity determinants with thermodynamic and kinetic properties more typical of RNA-binding proteins than of RNA or DNA.

  8. Mouse Ago2 can be expressed as a fusion protein with the maltose binding protein in a soluble and enzymatically active form, without requiring coexpression with chaperones and cleave the complementary RNA in absence of other cellular factors.

  1. Mutation of T1149 or R1158 in the conserved PIWI (show PIWIL1 Proteins) domain causes AGO2 protein instability, but only T1149 affects RNAi activity. Mass spec analysis shows that several proteasome components co-purify with both wildtype and mutant AGO2, and knockdown of two proteasome pathway components results in AGO2 protein accumulation.

  2. We speculate that the repeated evolution of testis specificity in obscura group Ago2 genes, combined with their dynamic turnover and strong signatures of adaptive evolution, may be associated with highly derived roles in the suppression of transposable elements or meiotic drive

  3. We find there are large differences in evolutionary rates and gene turnover between pathways, and that paralogs of Ago2, Ago3, and Piwi/Aub show contrasting rates of evolution after duplication.

  8. two new nuclear roles for Ago-2: one in pre-mRNA splicing and one in transcriptional repression.

  9. Highlighting its role in antiviral defense, fly Ago2 dissociates so slowly from extensively complementary target RNAs that essentially every fully paired target is cleaved. Conversely, mouse AGO2, which mainly mediates miRNA-directed repression, dissociates rapidly and with similar rates for fully paired and seed-matched targets.

  10. Nora virus VP1 and the viral suppressor of RNAi of Cricket paralysis virus (1A) antagonized Argonaute-2 (AGO2) Slicer activity of RNA induced silencing complexes pre-loaded with a methylated single-stranded guide strand.

AGO2 (EIF2C2) Protein Profile

Protein Summary

This gene encodes a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which play a role in RNA interference. The encoded protein is highly basic, and contains a PAZ domain and a PIWI domain. It may interact with dicer1 and play a role in short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
