USP30, a member of the ubiquitin-specific protease family (see USP1, MIM 603478), is a novel mitochondrial deubiquitinating (DUB) enzyme (Nakamura and Hirose, 2008 [PubMed 18287522]).[supplied by OMIM, Dec 2008]
GeneCards Summary for USP30 Gene
USP30 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 30) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis and Mitophagy - animal. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP15.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP30 Gene
Deubiquitinating enzyme tethered to the mitochondrial outer membrane that acts as a key inhibitor of mitophagy by counteracting the action of parkin (PRKN): hydrolyzes ubiquitin attached by parkin on target proteins, such as RHOT1/MIRO1 and TOMM20, thereby blocking parkin's ability to drive mitophagy (PubMed:18287522, PubMed:24896179, PubMed:25527291, PubMed:25621951). Preferentially cleaves 'Lys-6'- and 'Lys-11'-linked polyubiquitin chains, 2 types of linkage that participate to mitophagic signaling (PubMed:25621951). Does not cleave efficiently polyubiquitin phosphorylated at 'Ser-65' (PubMed:25527291). Acts as negative regulator of mitochondrial fusion by mediating deubiquitination of MFN1 and MFN2 (By similarity).
