GeneCards Summary for USP13 Gene

USP13 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 13 (Isopeptidase T-3)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Protein Stability and Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin protein ligase binding and cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP13 Gene

  • Deubiquitinase that mediates deubiquitination of target proteins such as BECN1, MITF, SKP2 and USP10 and is involved in various processes such as autophagy and endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD). Component of a regulatory loop that controls autophagy and p53/TP53 levels: mediates deubiquitination of BECN1, a key regulator of autophagy, leading to stabilize the PIK3C3/VPS34-containing complexes. Also deubiquitinates USP10, an essential regulator of p53/TP53 stability. In turn, PIK3C3/VPS34-containing complexes regulate USP13 stability, suggesting the existence of a regulatory system by which PIK3C3/VPS34-containing complexes regulate p53/TP53 protein levels via USP10 and USP13. Recruited by nuclear UFD1 and mediates deubiquitination of SKP2, thereby regulating endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD). Mediates stabilization of SIAH2 independently of deubiquitinase activity: binds ubiquitinated SIAH2 and acts by impairing SIAH2 autoubiquitination. Has a weak deubiquitinase activity in vitro and preferentially cleaves Lys-63-linked polyubiquitin chains. In contrast to USP5, it is not able to mediate unanchored polyubiquitin disassembly. Able to cleave ISG15 in vitro; however, additional experiments are required to confirm such data.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

UBP13_HUMAN :
  • Q92995
Domain:
  • The UBP-type zinc finger has lost its ability to bind ubiquitin and USP13 is not activated by unanchored ubiquitin. Swapping with the UBP-type zinc finger from USP5 restores ability to bind unanchored ubiquitin and subsequent activation of the protein (PubMed:22216260).
  • The UBA domains mediate binding to ubiquitin.
  • Contains 2 UBA domains.
  • Contains 1 USP domain.
Family:
  • Belongs to the peptidase C19 family.
Similarity:
  • Contains 1 UBP-type zinc finger.

Function for USP13 Gene

Molecular function for USP13 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry: ubiquitin specific protease 13,expressed in testis and ovary,ubiquitin C terminal hydrolase family member,deubiquitin enzyme family
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity: Thiol-dependent hydrolysis of ester, thioester, amide, peptide and isopeptide bonds formed by the C-terminal Gly of ubiquitin (a 76-residue protein attached to proteins as an intracellular targeting signal)
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation: Specifically inhibited by spautin-1 (specific and potent autophagy inhibitor-1), a derivative of MBCQ that binds to USP13 and inhibits deubiquitinase activity. Regulated by PIK3C3/VPS34-containing complexes. The weak deubiquitinase activity in vitro suggests the existence of some mechanism that activates the enzyme.
