Gene: Usp18 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 18) Mus musculus
Symbol: Usp18
Name: ubiquitin specific peptidase 18
CRRD ID: 1551994
Description: Exhibits ISG15-specific protease activity. Involved in response to bacterium and response to stilbenoid. Predicted to localize to cytosol and nucleus. Is expressed in axial skeleton; lung; and mandible. Orthologous to several human genes including USP18 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 18); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
