  • Target

    • Function
      Deubiquitinating enzyme involved in beta-2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) recycling. Acts as a regulator of G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling by mediating the deubiquitination beta-2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2). Plays a central role in ADRB2 recycling and resensitization after prolonged agonist stimulation by constitutively binding ADRB2, mediating deubiquitination of ADRB2 and inhibiting lysosomal trafficking of ADRB2. Upon dissociation, it is probably transferred to the translocated beta-arrestins, possibly leading to beta-arrestins deubiquitination and disengagement from ADRB2. This suggests the existence of a dynamic exchange between the ADRB2 and beta-arrestins. Deubiquitinates DIO2, thereby regulating thyroid hormone regulation. Deubiquitinates HIF1A, leading to stabilize HIF1A and enhance HIF1A-mediated activity. Mediates deubiquitination of both 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitin chains.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the peptidase C19 family. USP20/USP33 subfamily.
      Contains 2 DUSP domains.
      Contains 1 UBP-type zinc finger.
    • Domain
      The UBP-type zinc finger binds 3 zinc ions. However, it does not bind ubiquitin, probably because the conserved Arg in position 55 is replaced by a Glu residue.
    • Post-translational
      Ubiquitinated via a VHL-dependent pathway for proteasomal degradation.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. According to PubMed:12865408, it localizes in the endoplasmic reticulum; however the relevance of such result is unclear.
