QSOX2 Catalyzes the oxidation of sulfhydryl groups in peptide and protein thiols to disulfides with the reduction of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. May contribute to disulfide bond formation in a variety of secreted proteins. Also seems to play a role in regulating the sensitization of neuroblastoma cells for interferon-gamma-induced apoptosis. Belongs to the quiescin-sulfhydryl oxidase (QSOX) family. Expressed in pancreas, brain, placenta, kidney, heart and fetal tissues. Weakly expressed in lung, liver and skeletal muscles. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
