Summaries for USP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a protease that deubiquitinates target proteins such as ADORA2A and TRIM21. The encoded protein shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm and is involved in maintaining operational fidelity in the endoplasmic reticulum. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]

GeneCards Summary for USP4 Gene

USP4 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 4 (Proto-Oncogene)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USP4 include oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle / Checkpoint Control and Protein Stability. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and ubiquitin-specific protease activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP43.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP4 Gene

  • Hydrolase that deubiquitinates target proteins such as the receptor ADORA2A, PDPK1 and TRIM21. Deubiquitination of ADORA2A increases the amount of functional receptor at the cell surface. May regulate mRNA splicing through deubiquitination of the U4 spliceosomal protein PRPF3. This may prevent its recognition by the U5 component PRPF8 thereby destabilizing interactions within the U4/U6.U5 snRNP. May also play a role in the regulation of quality control in the ER.

Function for USP4 Gene

Molecular function for USP4 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry: ubiquitin-specific protease 4,homolog to murine Unp,with two tissue specific cytoplasmic isoforms,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 Function: Hydrolase that deubiquitinates target proteins such as the receptor ADORA2A, PDPK1 and TRIM21. Deubiquitination of ADORA2A increases the amount of functional receptor at the cell surface. May regulate mRNA splicing through deubiquitination of the U4 spliceosomal protein PRPF3. This may prevent its recognition by the U5 component PRPF8 thereby destabilizing interactions within the U4/U6.U5 snRNP. May also play a role in the regulation of quality control in the ER.
