Summaries for USP24 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USP24 Gene

  • Modification of cellular proteins by ubiquitin is an essential regulatory mechanism controlled by the coordinated action of multiple ubiquitin-conjugating and deubiquitinating enzymes. USP24 belongs to a large family of cysteine proteases that function as deubiquitinating enzymes (Quesada et al., 2004 [PubMed 14715245]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for USP24 Gene

USP24 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 24) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USP24 include Parkinson Disease, Late-Onset.
