USP22 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 22) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Deubiquitination. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include enzyme binding and cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP51.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for USP22 Gene
Histone deubiquitinating component of the transcription regulatory histone acetylation (HAT) complex SAGA. Catalyzes the deubiquitination of both histones H2A and H2B, thereby acting as a coactivator. Recruited to specific gene promoters by activators such as MYC, where it is required for transcription. Required for nuclear receptor-mediated transactivation and cell cycle progression.
