Identification, functional characterization, and chromosomal localization of USP15, a novel human ubiquitin-specific protease related to the UNP oncoprotein, and a systematic nomenclature for human ubiquitin-specific proteases

Baker, Rohan; Wang, Xu-Jia; Woollatt, E; White, J; Sutherland, Grant


We have identified a novel gene, USP15, encoding a human ubiquitin- specific protease (USP). The USP15 protein consists of 952 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 109.2 kDa and contains the highly conserved Cys and His boxes present in all members of the UBP family of deubiquitinating enzymes. USP15 shares 60.5% sequence identity and 76% sequence similarity with the human homolog (UNP/Unph/USP4) of the mouse Unp proto-oncogene. Recombinant USP15 demonstrated ubiquitin-specific...[Show more]
