Possesses single-stranded DNA-stimulated ATPase and ATP- dependent DNA helicase (5' to 3') activity; hexamerization is thought to be critical for ATP hydrolysis and adjacent subunits in the ring-like structure contribute to the ATPase activity. Forms homohexameric rings (Probable). Can form a dodecamer with RUVBL1 made of two stacked hexameric rings; however, even though RUVBL1 and RUVBL2 are present in equimolar ratio, the oligomeric status of each hexamer is not known. Oligomerization may regulate binding to nucleic acids and conversely, binding to nucleic acids may affect the dodecameric assembly. Interacts with the transcriptional activation domain of MYC. Interacts With ATF2. Component of the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme complex. May also act to bridge the LEF1/TCF1-CTNNB1 complex and TBP. Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex which contains the catalytic subunit KAT5/TIP60 and the subunits EP400, TRRAP/PAF400, BRD8/SMAP, EPC1, DMAP1/DNMAP1, RUVBL1/TIP49, RUVBL2, ING3, actin, ACTL6A/BAF53A, MORF4L1/MRG15, MORF4L2/MRGX, MRGBP, YEATS4/GAS41, VPS72/YL1 and MEAF6. The NuA4 complex interacts with MYC and the adenovirus E1A protein. RUVBL2 interacts with EP400. Component of a NuA4-related complex which contains EP400, TRRAP/PAF400, SRCAP, BRD8/SMAP, EPC1, DMAP1/DNMAP1, RUVBL1/TIP49, RUVBL2, actin, ACTL6A/BAF53A, VPS72 and YEATS4/GAS41. Interacts with NPAT. Component of the chromatin- remodeling INO80 complex; specifically part of a complex module associated with the helicase ATP-binding and the helicase C- terminal domain of INO80. Component of some MLL1/MLL complex, at least composed of the core components MLL, ASH2L, HCFC1/HCF1, WDR5 and RBBP5, as well as the facultative components C17orf49, CHD8, E2F6, HSP70, INO80C, KANSL1, LAS1L, MAX, MCRS1, MGA, MYST1/MOF, PELP1, PHF20, PRP31, RING2, RUVB1/TIP49A, RUVB2/TIP49B, SENP3, TAF1, TAF4, TAF6, TAF7, TAF9 and TEX10. Interacts with IGHMBP2. Interacts with TELO2. Ubiquitously expressed. Highly expressed in testis and thymus. Belongs to the RuvB family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
