FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the deubiquitinating enzyme family. Members of this family are proteases that catalyze the removal of ubiquitin from polypeptides and are divided into five classes, depending on the mechanism of catalysis. This protein may hydrolyze the ubiquitinyl-N-epsilon amide bond of ubiquitinated proteins to regenerate ubiquitin for another catalytic cycle. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null animals show degeneration in dorsal root ganglia. Mice display postnatal progressive retinal degeneration and muscular degeneration. In combination with a knockout of ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1, neurological effects of each are accelerated, mice are dysphagic and die younger. [provided by MGI curators]
