Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; promoter-specific chromatin binding activity; and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including histone deubiquitination; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of protein stability. Predicted to localize to Flemming body; cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granule; and nuclear lumen. Is expressed in embryo mesenchyme; embryo mesoderm; extraembryonic component; and primitive streak. Orthologous to human USP3 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 3).
