Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA damage checkpoint; intracellular signal transduction; and response to ionizing radiation. Predicted to localize to cytosol; nuclear body; and protein-containing complex. Is expressed in early embryo; foregut; heart; and skeletal musculature. Orthologous to human USP28 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 28).
