Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits Lys48-specific deubiquitinase activity; thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity; and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of proteasomal protein catabolic process; protein K48-linked deubiquitination; and protein stabilization. Localizes to the cytosol. Orthologous to human USP19 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 19).
