Aliases for USP36 Gene
External Ids for USP36 Gene
Modification of cellular proteins by ubiquitin is an essential regulatory mechanism controlled by the coordinated action of multiple ubiquitin-conjugating and deubiquitinating enzymes. USP36 belongs to a large family of cysteine proteases that function as deubiquitinating enzymes (Quesada et al., 2004 [PubMed 14715245]).[supplied by OMIM, Jan 2009]
GeneCards Summary for USP36 Gene
USP36 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 36) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin thiolesterase activity and cysteine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP17L25.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP36 Gene
May be required for maintaining multiple types of adult stem cells. May function as a transcriptional repressor by continually deubiquiting histone H2B at the promoters of genes critical for cellular differentiation, thereby preventing histone H3 Lys-4 trimethylation (H3K4) (By similarity).
