  • Function
    Hydrolase that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from proteins and therefore plays an important regulatory role at the level of protein turnover by preventing degradation. Converts both 'Lys-48' an 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitin chains. Catalytic activity is enhanced in the M phase. Involved in cell proliferation. Required to enter into S phase in response to serum stimulation. May regulate T-cell anergy mediated by RNF128 via the formation of a complex containing RNF128 and OTUB1. Probably regulates the stability of STAM2 and RASGRF1. Regulates endosomal ubiquitin dynamics, cargo sorting, membrane traffic at early endosomes, and maintenance of ESCRT-0 stability. The level of protein ubiquitination on endosomes is essential for maintaining the morphology of the organelle. Deubiquitinates EPS15 and controles tyrosine kinase stability. Removes conjugated ubiquitin from EGFR thus regulating EGFR degradation and downstream MAPK signaling. Involved in acrosome biogenesis through interaction with the spermatid ESCRT-0 complex and microtubules. Deubiquitinates BIRC6/bruce and KIF23/MKLP1.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase C19 family.
    Contains 1 MIT domain.
    Contains 1 rhodanese domain.
    Contains 1 USP domain.
  • Domain
    The MIT domain is required for endosomal localization, CHMP1B-binding, maintenance of ESCRT-0 stability and EGFR degradation.
    The rhodanese domain is sufficient for RNF41-binding.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation of Ser-718 is essential for interaction with YWHAE and for cytosol localization. Undergoes dephosphorylation at Ser-718 in the M phase. Tyrosine-phosphorylated in its N-terminal half in an EGFR-dependent manner.
    Ubiquitinated. Inactive form is mostly monoubiquitinated, but polyubiquitination happens too. Ubiquitination is increased in EGF-stimulated cells. Ubiquitination of active form is undetectable, suggesting a possibility that USP8 deubiquitinates itself, thereby regulating its own function.
