Gene: Usp2 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Usp2
Name: ubiquitin specific peptidase 2
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including circadian regulation of gene expression; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; and locomotor rhythm. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell cortex; nucleus; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; integumental system; and reproductive system. Orthologous to human USP2 (ubiquitin specific peptidase 2); INTERACTS WITH (2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy)acetic acid; 1,2-dichloroethane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
