Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Involved in histone H2B conserved C-terminal lysine deubiquitination; regulation of circadian rhythm; and regulation of protein stability. Localizes to the XY body; cytoplasm; and nucleus. Is expressed in embryo and trophectoderm. Orthologous to human USP7 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 7).
