CAAX prenyl protease 2 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the RCE1 gene.[3][4][5]

This gene encodes an integral membrane protein which is classified as a member of the metalloproteinase family. This enzyme is thought to function in the maintenance and processing of CAAX-type prenylated proteins.[5]
