Protein ubiquitination controls many intracellular processes, including cell cycle progression, transcriptional activation, and signal transduction. This dynamic process, involving ubiquitin conjugating enzymes and deubiquitinating enzymes, adds and removes ubiquitin. Deubiquitinating enzymes are cysteine proteases that specifically cleave ubiquitin from ubiquitin-conjugated protein substrates. This gene encodes a deubiquitinating enzyme which lies in a gene cluster on chromosome Xp11.23 [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for USP11 Gene
USP11 (Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Deubiquitination. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitinyl hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is USP4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USP11 Gene
Protease that can remove conjugated ubiquitin from target proteins and polyubiquitin chains (PubMed:12084015, PubMed:15314155, PubMed:17897950, PubMed:19874889, PubMed:20233726, PubMed:24724799). Inhibits the degradation of target proteins by the proteasome (PubMed:12084015). Cleaves preferentially Lys-6 and Lys-63-linked ubiquitin chains. Has lower activity with Lys-11 and Lys-33-linked ubiquitin chains, and extremely low activity with Lys-27, Lys-29 and Lys-48-linked ubiquitin chains (in vitro) (PubMed:24724799). Plays a role in the regulation of pathways leading to NF-kappa-B activation (PubMed:17897950, PubMed:19874889). Plays a role in the regulation of DNA repair after double-stranded DNA breaks (PubMed:15314155, PubMed:20233726). Acts as a chromatin regulator via its association with the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1-like complex; may act by deubiquitinating components of the PRC1-like complex (PubMed:20601937).
