UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP12 Gene
Deubiquitinating enzyme. Has almost no deubiquitinating activity by itself and requires the interaction with WDR20 and WDR48 to have a high activity (PubMed:19075014, PubMed:27373336). Not involved in deubiquitination of monoubiquitinated FANCD2 (PubMed:19075014). In complex with WDR48, acts as a potential tumor suppressor by positively regulating PHLPP1 stability (PubMed:24145035).
