Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity and ubiquitin-like protein-specific protease activity. Involved in positive regulation of NLRP3 inflammasome complex assembly and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including extrinsic component of endosome membrane; midbody; and postsynaptic density. Orthologous to human USP50 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 50).
