Summaries for USP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the family of de-ubiquitinating enzymes, which belongs to the peptidase C19 superfamily. The encoded protein is a ubiquitin-specific protease which is required for TNF-alpha (tumor necrosis factor alpha) -induced NF-kB (nuclear factor kB) signaling. This protein deubiquitinates polyubiquitinated target proteins such as fatty acid synthase, murine double minute 2 (MDM2), MDM4/MDMX and cyclin D1. MDM2 and MDM4 are negative regulators of the p53 tumor suppressor and cyclin D1 is required for cell cycle G1/S transition. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for USP2 Gene

USP2 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USP2 include serous cystadenocarcinoma and ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle / Checkpoint Control and Protein Stability. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and ubiquitin thiolesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP49.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP2 Gene

  • Hydrolase that deubiquitinates polyubiquitinated target proteins such as MDM2, MDM4 and CCND1. Isoform 1 and isoform 4 possess both ubiquitin-specific peptidase and isopeptidase activities. Deubiquitinates MDM2 without reversing MDM2-mediated p53/TP53 ubiquitination and thus indirectly promotes p53/TP53 degradation and limits p53 activity. Has no deubiquitinase activity against p53/TP53. Prevents MDM2-mediated degradation of MDM4. Plays a role in the G1/S cell-cycle progression in normal and cancer cells. Plays a role in the regulation of myogenic differentiation of embryonic muscle cells. Regulates the circadian clock by modulating its intrinsic circadian rhythm and its capacity to respond to external cues. Associates with clock proteins and deubiquitinates core clock component PER1 but does not affect its overall stability. Regulates the nucleocytoplasmic shuttling and nuclear retention of PER1 and its repressive role on the clock transcription factors CLOCK and ARNTL/BMAL1 (By similarity).
