OTUB1 cDNA Clone: Expression and Clone Vector / Plasmid

OTUB1 cDNA / Gene Overview

OTUB1 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 11q13.1. The OTUB1 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, rat, chicken, N.crassa, and frog.171 organisms have orthologs with human gene OTUB1.

OTUB1 cDNA / Gene Function

The product of this gene is a member of the OTU (ovarian tumor) superfamily of predicted cysteine proteases. The encoded protein is a highly specific ubiquitin iso-peptidase, and cleaves ubiquitin from branched poly-ubiquitin chains but not from ubiquitinated substrates. It interacts with another ubiquitin protease and an E3 ubiquitin ligase that inhibits cytokine gene transcription in the immune system. It is proposed to function in specific ubiquitin-dependent pathways, possibly by providing an editing function for polyubiquitin chain growth. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
