  • Function
    Protease that degrades 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitin chains. Protects target proteins against proteasomal degradation. Protects APC and human papillomavirus type 16 protein E6 against degradation via the ubiquitin proteasome pathway.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in skeletal muscle, kidney, heart, placenta, liver, thymus, lung, and ovary, with little or no expression in other tissues.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase C19 family.
    Contains 1 DUSP domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation protects against ubiquitination and subsequent degradation by the proteasome.
    Ubiquitinated, leading to degradation by the proteasome.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab56900 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab56900, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H&L) (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
