Summaries for USP8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the ubiquitin-specific processing protease family of proteins. The encoded protein is thought to regulate the morphology of the endosome by ubiquitination of proteins on this organelle and is involved in cargo sorting and membrane trafficking at the early endosome stage. This protein is required for the cell to enter the S phase of the cell cycle and also functions as a positive regulator in the Hedgehog signaling pathway in development. Pseudogenes of this gene are present on chromosomes 2 and 6. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]

GeneCards Summary for USP8 Gene

USP8 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USP8 include autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia type 59. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include SH3 domain binding and cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP49.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP8 Gene

  • Hydrolase that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from proteins and therefore plays an important regulatory role at the level of protein turnover by preventing degradation. Converts both Lys-48 an Lys-63-linked ubiquitin chains. Catalytic activity is enhanced in the M phase. Involved in cell proliferation. Required to enter into S phase in response to serum stimulation. May regulate T-cell anergy mediated by RNF128 via the formation of a complex containing RNF128 and OTUB1. Probably regulates the stability of STAM2 and RASGRF1. Regulates endosomal ubiquitin dynamics, cargo sorting, membrane traffic at early endosomes, and maintenance of ESCRT-0 stability. The level of protein ubiquitination on endosomes is essential for maintaining the morphology of the organelle. Deubiquitinates EPS15 and controles tyrosine kinase stability. Removes conjugated ubiquitin from EGFR thus regulating EGFR degradation and downstream MAPK signaling. Involved in acrosome biogenesis through interaction with the spermatid ESCRT-0 complex and microtubules. Deubiquitinates BIRC6/bruce and KIF23/MKLP1.

Post-translational modifications for USP8 Gene

  • Phosphorylation of Ser-718 is essential for interaction with YWHAE and for cytosol localization. Undergoes dephosphorylation at Ser-718 in the M phase. Tyrosine-phosphorylated in its N-terminal half in an EGFR-dependent manner.
  • Ubiquitinated. Inactive form is mostly monoubiquitinated, but polyubiquitination happens too. Ubiquitination is increased in EGF-stimulated cells. Ubiquitination of active form is undetectable, suggesting a possibility that USP8 deubiquitinates itself, thereby regulating its own function (By similarity).
