Summaries for OTUB2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OTUB2 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of several deubiquitylating enzymes. Ubiquitin modification of proteins is needed for their stability and function; to reverse the process, deubiquityling enzymes remove ubiquitin. This protein contains an OTU domain and binds Ubal (ubiquitin aldehyde); an active cysteine protease site is present in the OTU domain. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for OTUB2 Gene

OTUB2 (OTU Deubiquitinase, Ubiquitin Aldehyde Binding 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitination Cascade Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and omega peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is OTUB1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OTUB2 Gene

  • Hydrolase that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from proteins in vitro and may therefore play an important regulatory role at the level of protein turnover by preventing degradation. Mediates deubiquitination of Lys-11-,Lys-48- and Lys-63-linked polyubiquitin chains, with a preference for Lys-63-linked polyubiquitin chains.

    Miscellaneous:
    • In the structure described by PubMed:15258613, the Asp-48 active site of the catalytic triad is located too far to interact directly with the active site His-224. A possible explanation is that OTUB2 is in inactive conformation in absence of ubiquitin and a conformation change may move Asp-48 in the proximity of His-224 in presence of ubiquitin substrate.
