This gene encodes a member of the peptidase C19 or ubiquitin-specific protease family of cysteine proteases. Members of this family remove ubiquitin molecules from polyubiquitinated proteins. The encoded protein may deubiquitinate and stabilize the transcription factor c-Myc, also known as MYC, an important oncoprotein known to be upregulated in most human cancers. The encoded ...

Entrez Gene Summary for USP36 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the peptidase C19 or ubiquitin-specific protease family of cysteine proteases. Members of this family remove ubiquitin molecules from polyubiquitinated proteins. The encoded protein may deubiquitinate and stabilize the transcription factor c-Myc, also known as MYC, an important oncoprotein known to be upregulated in most human cancers. The encoded protease may also regulate the activation of autophagy. This gene exhibits elevated expression in some breast and lung cancers. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]

GeneCards Summary for USP36 Gene

USP36 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 36) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP42.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for USP36 Gene

  • Deubiquitinase essential for the regulation of nucleolar structure and function. Required for cell and organism viability. Plays an important role in ribosomal RNA processing and protein synthesis, which is mediated, at least in part, through deubiquitination of DHX33, NPM1 and FBL, regulating their protein stability (PubMed:29273634, PubMed:19208757, PubMed:22902402). Functions as a transcriptional repressor by deubiquiting histone H2B at the promoters of genes critical for cellular differentiation, such as CDKN1A, thereby preventing histone H3 'Lys-4' trimethylation (H3K4) (PubMed:29274341). Specifically deubiquitinates MYC in the nucleolus, leading to prevent MYC degradation by the proteasome: acts by specifically interacting with isoform 3 of FBXW7 (FBW7gamma) in the nucleolus and counteracting ubiquitination of MYC by the SCF(FBW7) complex. In contrast, it does not interact with isoform 1 of FBXW7 (FBW7alpha) in the nucleoplasm (PubMed:25775507). Interacts to and regulates the actions of E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase NEDD4L over substrates such as NTRK1, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, affecting their expression an functions (PubMed:27445338). Deubiquitinates SOD2, regulates SOD2 protein stability (PubMed:21268071). Deubiquitinase activity is required to control selective autophagy activation by ubiquitinated proteins (PubMed:22622177).
