Aliases for YOD1 Gene
External Ids for YOD1 Gene
Protein ubiquitination controls many intracellular processes, including cell cycle progression, transcriptional activation, and signal transduction. This dynamic process, involving ubiquitin conjugating enzymes and deubiquitinating enzymes, adds and removes ubiquitin. Deubiquitinating enzymes are cysteine proteases that specifically cleave ubiquitin from ubiquitin-conjugated protein substrates. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a DUB subfamily characterized by an ovarian tumor (OTU) domain. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for YOD1 Gene
Hydrolase that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from proteins and participates in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) for misfolded lumenal proteins. May act by triming the ubiquitin chain on the associated substrate to facilitate their threading through the VCP/p97 pore. Ubiquitin moieties on substrates may present a steric impediment to the threading process when the substrate is transferred to the VCP pore and threaded through VCPs axial channel. Mediates deubiquitination of Lys-27-, Lys-29- and Lys-33-linked polyubiquitin chains. Also able to hydrolyze Lys-11-linked ubiquitin chains. Cleaves both polyubiquitin and di-ubiquitin.
