Summaries for USP9Y Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP9Y Gene

  • This gene is a member of the peptidase C19 family. It encodes a protein that is similar to ubiquitin-specific proteases, which cleave the ubiquitin moiety from ubiquitin-fused precursors and ubiquitinylated proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for USP9Y Gene

USP9Y (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 9, Y-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USP9Y include spermatogenic failure, y-linked, 2 and sertoli cell-only syndrome. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and cysteine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP41.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP9Y Gene

  • May function as a ubiquitin-protein or polyubiquitin hydrolase involved both in the processing of ubiquitin precursors and of ubiquitinated proteins. May therefore play an important role regulatory role at the level of protein turnover by preventing degradation of proteins through the removal of conjugated ubiquitin. Essential component of TGF-beta/BMP signaling cascade. Deubiquitinates monoubiquitinated SMAD4, opposing the activity of E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase TRIM33. Monoubiquitination of SMAD4 hampers its ability to form a stable complex with activated SMAD2/3 resulting in inhibition of TGF-beta/BMP signaling cascade. Deubiqitination of SMAD4 by USP9X re-empowers its competence to mediate TGF-beta signaling (By similarity).

  • Note=USP9Y is located in the azoospermia factor a (AZFa) region on chromosome Y which is deleted in Sertoli cell-only syndrome. This is an infertility disorder in which no germ cells are visible in seminiferous tubules leading to azoospermia. However, AZFa deletions resulting in complete loss of USP9Y have also been found in normospermic men (PubMed:19246359). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19246359}.
  • Spermatogenic failure Y-linked 2 (SPGFY2) [MIM:415000]: A disorder resulting in the absence (azoospermia) or reduction (oligozoospermia) of sperm in the semen, leading to male infertility. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10581029}. Note=The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. The role of USP9Y in spermatogenesis failure is uncertain (PubMed:19246359). A 4-bp deletion in a splice-donor site, causing exon skipping and protein truncation has been observed in non-obstructive azoospermia (PubMed:10581029). However, complete USP9Y deletion has been detected in individuals with no spermatogenic defects (PubMed:19246359). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10581029, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19246359}.
