Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of NF-kappaB transcription factor activity; protein linear deubiquitination; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Colocalizes with the LUBAC complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in otulipenia. Orthologous to human OTULIN (OTU deubiquitinase with linear linkage specificity).
