MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the ubiquitin-specific proteases (UBP) family of enzymes that cleave ubiquitin from ubiquitinated protein substrates. It is highly expressed in liver and thymus, and is localized to the nucleus. This protein efficiently cleaves only ISG15 (a ubiquitin-like protein) fusions, and deletion of this gene in mice results in a massive increase of ISG15 conjugates in tissues, indicating that this protein is a major ISG15-specific protease. Mice lacking this gene are also hypersensitive to interferon, suggesting a function of this protein in downregulating interferon responses, independent of its isopeptidase activity towards ISG15.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants die prematurely with cellular necrosis in the ependyma, breakdown of blood-brain barrier, hydrocephaly with enlarged ventricles, and severe neurological abnormalities. Mice homozygous for an ENU-induced allele exhibit increased susceptibility to Salmonella infection and LPS. [provided by MGI curators]
