Summaries for OTUD6B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OTUD6B Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ovarian tumor domain (OTU)-containing subfamily of deubiquitinating enzymes. Deubiquitinating enzymes are primarily involved in removing ubiquitin from proteins targeted for degradation. This protein may function as a negative regulator of the cell cycle in B cells. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2013]

GeneCards Summary for OTUD6B Gene
