XB-GENEPAGE- 1016673

Gene Symbol: usp33

Gene Name: ubiquitin specific peptidase 33

Add Xenopus synonyms , Nomenclature history

Gene Function: Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase

Protein Function:
Deubiquitinating enzyme involved in various processes such as centrosome duplication, cellular migration and beta-2 adrenergic receptor/ADRB2 recycling. Involved in regulation of centrosome duplication by mediating deubiquitination of ccp110 in S and G2/M phase, leading to stabilize ccp110 during the period which centrioles duplicate and elongate. Involved in cell migration via its interaction with intracellular domain of robo1, leading to regulate the Slit signaling. Plays a role in commissural axon guidance cross the ventral midline of the neural tube in a Slit-dependent manner, possibly by mediating the deubiquitination of robo1. Acts as a regulator of G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling by mediating the deubiquitination of beta-arrestins (arrb1 and arrb2) and beta-2 adrenergic receptor (adrb2). Deubiquitinates dio2, thereby regulating thyroid hormone regulation. Mediates deubiquitination of both 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitin chains.
