Predicted to enable cysteine-type deubiquitinase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to UV; intracellular signal transduction; and response to ionizing radiation. Predicted to act upstream of or within DNA repair and proteolysis. Predicted to be located in nuclear body. Predicted to be part of protein-containing complex. Predicted to be active in cytosol and nucleus. Is expressed in early embryo; foregut; heart; and skeletal musculature. Orthologous to human USP28 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 28).
