  • Function
    Hydrolase that deubiquitinates polyubiquitinated target proteins such as MDM2, MDM4 and CCND1. Isoform 1 and isoform 4 possess both ubiquitin-specific peptidase and isopeptidase activities. Deubiquitinates MDM2 without reversing MDM2-mediated p53/TP53 ubiquitination and thus indirectly promotes p53/TP53 degradation and limits p53 activity. Has no deubiquitinase activity against p53/TP53. Prevents MDM2-mediated degradation of MDM4. Plays a role in the G1/S cell-cycle progression in normal and cancer cells. Plays a role in the regulation of myogenic differentiation of embryonic muscle cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in mesangial cells of the kidney and in different types of glomerulonephritides (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase C19 family. USP2 subfamily.
  • Domain
    The different N-terminus extensions of isoform 1 and isoform 4 determine their respective subcellular localization and differentiel effect on myoblast fusion and accumulation of muscle-specific proteins. The different N-terminus extensions of isoform 1 and isoform 4 are not essential for their catalytic activity.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus and Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Localizes in the spermatid head in late-elongating spermatids in the thin area between the outer acrosomal membrane and the plasma membrane.
