Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SENP3 Gene
The reversible posttranslational modification of proteins by the addition of small ubiquitin-like SUMO proteins (see SUMO1; MIM 601912) is required for numerous biologic processes. SUMO-specific proteases, such as SENP3, are responsible for the initial processing of SUMO precursors to generate a C-terminal diglycine motif required for the conjugation reaction. They also have isopeptidase activity for the removal of SUMO from high molecular mass SUMO conjugates (Di Bacco et al., 2006 [PubMed 16738315]).[supplied by OMIM, Jun 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SENP3 Gene
SENP3 (SUMO Specific Peptidase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are rRNA processing in the nucleus and cytosol and Gene Expression. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cysteine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SENP3-EIF4A1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SENP3 Gene
Protease that releases SUMO2 and SUMO3 monomers from sumoylated substrates, but has only weak activity against SUMO1 conjugates. Deconjugates SUMO2 from MEF2D, which increases its transcriptional activation capability. Deconjugates SUMO2 and SUMO3 from CDCA8. Redox sensor that, when redistributed into nucleoplasm, can act as an effector to enhance HIF1A transcriptional activity by desumoylating EP300. Required for rRNA processing through deconjugation of SUMO2 and SUMO3 from nucleophosmin, NPM1. Plays a role in the regulation of sumoylation status of ZNF148. Functions as a component of the Five Friends of Methylated CHTOP (5FMC) complex; the 5FMC complex is recruited to ZNF148 by methylated CHTOP, leading to desumoylation of ZNF148 and subsequent transactivation of ZNF148 target genes.
