GeneCards Summary for USP19 Gene
USP19 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 19) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. An important paralog of this gene is MIR6125.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP19 Gene
Deubiquitinating enzyme that regulates the degradation of various proteins. Deubiquitinates and prevents proteasomal degradation of RNF123 which in turn stimulates CDKN1B ubiquitin-dependent degradation thereby playing a role in cell proliferation. Involved in decreased protein synthesis in atrophying skeletal muscle. Modulates transcription of major myofibrillar proteins. Also involved in turnover of endoplasmic-reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) substrates. Regulates the stability of BIRC2/c-IAP1 and BIRC3/c-IAP2 by preventing their ubiquitination. Required for cells to mount an appropriate response to hypoxia and rescues HIF1A from degradation in a non-catalytic manner. Plays an important role in 17 beta-estradiol (E2)-inhibited myogenesis. Decreases the levels of ubiquitinated proteins during skeletal muscle formation and acts to repress myogenesis. Exhibits a preference towards Lys-63-linked Ubiquitin chains.
