Aliases for USP46 Gene
External Ids for USP46 Gene
Modification of cellular proteins by ubiquitin is an essential regulatory mechanism controlled by the coordinated action of multiple ubiquitin-conjugating and deubiquitinating enzymes. USP46 belongs to a large family of cysteine proteases that function as deubiquitinating enzymes (Quesada et al., 2004 [PubMed 14715245]).[supplied by OMIM, Jun 2009]
GeneCards Summary for USP46 Gene
USP46 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 46) 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 ubiquitin-specific protease activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP12.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP46 Gene
Deubiquitinating enzyme that plays a role in behavior, possibly by regulating GABA action. May act by mediating the deubiquitination of GAD1/GAD67. Has almost no deubiquitinating activity by itself and requires the interaction with WDR48 to have a high activity. Not involved in deubiquitination of monoubiquitinated FANCD2.
