Xiao W, et al. (1994) UBP5 encodes a putative yeast ubiquitin-specific protease that is related to the human Tre-2 oncogene product. Yeast 10(11):1497-502
Abstract: A gene from chromosome V of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been cloned and sequenced. The deduced amino acid sequence encoded by this gene is similar to several ubiquitin-specific proteases from yeast, especially at the highly conserved domain. It is thus named UBP5. UBP5 is also closely related to the human Tre-2 and the mouse Unp oncogene products. This study adds a new member to the ubiquitin protease family and suggests that alteration of ubiquitin protease activity may result in cancer in mammals. However, disruption of the UBP5 gene in a haploid strain did not result in a noticeable phenotypic alteration.
