Gene: USP17L8 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 17 like family member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: USP17L8
Name: ubiquitin specific peptidase 17 like family member 8
Description: Predicted to have cysteine-type endopeptidase activity and thiol-dependent ubiquitin-specific protease activity. Predicted to be involved in protein deubiquitination and regulation of apoptotic process. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum and nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Also known as: inactive ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 17-like protein 8; ubiquitin specific peptidase 17-like 8; ubiquitin specific peptidase 17-like family member 8; USP17L10
Allele / Splice: See ClinVar data
Latest Assembly: GRCh38 - Human Genome Assembly GRCh38
NCBI Annotation Information: Note: This gene contains an intact open reading frame; however, it is classified as a pseudogene because no transcripts available as of August 2009 are thought to originate from this location, suggesting that this gene does not have a functional promoter. [26 Aug 2009]
