Summaries for USP16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP16 Gene

  • This gene encodes a deubiquitinating enzyme that is phosphorylated at the onset of mitosis and then dephosphorylated at the metaphase/anaphase transition. It can deubiquitinate H2A, one of two major ubiquitinated proteins of chromatin, in vitro and a mutant form of the protein was shown to block cell division. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for USP16 Gene

USP16 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 16) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway and Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription coactivator activity and histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is USP4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP16 Gene

  • Specifically deubiquitinates Lys-120 of histone H2A (H2AK119Ub), a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression, thereby acting as a coactivator. Deubiquitination of histone H2A is a prerequisite for subsequent phosphorylation at Ser-11 of histone H3 (H3S10ph), and is required for chromosome segregation when cells enter into mitosis. In resting B- and T-lymphocytes, phosphorylation by AURKB leads to enhance its activity, thereby maintaining transcription in resting lymphocytes. Regulates Hox gene expression via histone H2A deubiquitination. Prefers nucleosomal substrates. Does not deubiquitinate histone H2B.
