Gene: USP18 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 18) Homo sapiens
Symbol: USP18
Name: ubiquitin specific peptidase 18
CRRD ID: 1353279
Description: Predicted to have ISG15-specific protease activity; cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Involved in regulation of inflammatory response. Localizes to cytosol and nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 43 kDa ISG15-specific protease; hUBP43; ISG15-specific-processing protease; ISG43; PTORCH2; ubiquitin specific protease 18; ubl carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 18; ubl thioesterase 18; ubl thiolesterase 18; UBP43
