1/650. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
功能Specifically deubiquitinates histone H2A, a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression, thereby acting as a coactivator. Deubiquitination of histone H2A is a prerequisite for subsequent phosphorylation at 'Ser-10' of histone H3, and is required for chromosome segregation when cells enter into mitosis. Regulates Hox gene expression via histone H2A deubiquitination. Prefers nucleosomal substrates. Does not deubiquitinate histone H2B.
组织特异性Present in all the tissues examined including fetal brain, lung, liver, kidney, and adult heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas.
疾病相关Note=A chromosomal aberration involving USP16 is a cause of Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Inversion inv(21) (q21;q22) with RUNX1/AML1.
序列相似性Belongs to the peptidase C19 family. USP16 subfamily. Contains 1 UBP-type zinc finger.
结构域The UBP-type zinc finger binds 3 zinc ions that form a pair of cross-braced ring fingers encapsulated within a third zinc finger in the primary structure. It recognizes the C-terminal tail of free ubiquitin.
翻译后修饰Phosphorylated at the onset of mitosis and dephosphorylated during the metaphase/anaphase transition. The phosphorylated form of the protein is also enzymatically active.
