Summaries for SENP8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SENP8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a cysteine protease that is a member of the sentrin-specific protease family. The encoded protein is involved in processing and deconjugation of the ubiquitin-like protein termed, neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated 8. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SENP8 Gene

SENP8 (SUMO/Sentrin Peptidase Family Member, NEDD8 Specific) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SENP8 include Dengue Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include cysteine-type peptidase activity and NEDD8-specific protease activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SENP8 Gene

  • Protease that catalyzes two essential functions in the NEDD8 pathway: processing of full-length NEDD8 to its mature form and deconjugation of NEDD8 from targeted proteins such as cullins or p53.

Molecular function for SENP8 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot BiophysicochemicalProperties:
Kinetic parameters: KM=51 nM for Nedd8-AMC {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12759362}; Note=KM for Ub-AMC exceeds 5 uM.;
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Hydrolysis of the alpha-linked peptide bond in the sequence Gly-Gly- -Ala-Thr-Tyr at the C-terminal end of the small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) propeptide, Smt3, leading to the mature form of the protein. A second reaction involves the cleavage of an epsilon-linked peptide bond between the C-terminal glycine of the mature SUMO and the lysine epsilon-amino group of the target protein.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Protease that catalyzes two essential functions in the NEDD8 pathway: processing of full-length NEDD8 to its mature form and deconjugation of NEDD8 from targeted proteins such as cullins or p53.
