    USP7/HAUSP Background

    Gene Summary: OMIM - description for USP7 (HAUSP):
    General information above from NCBI
    Catalytic activity: Thiol-dependent hydrolysis of ester, thioester, amide, peptide and isopeptide bonds formed by the C- terminal Gly of ubiquitin (a 76-residue protein attached to proteins as an intracellular targeting signal).
    Enzyme regulation: Inhibited by N-ethyl-maleimide (NEM) and divalent cations. Tolerates high concentrations of NaCl but is inhibited at concentrations of 195 mM and higher.
    Subunit structure: Monomer. Homodimer. Part of a complex with DAXX, MDM2, RASSF1 and USP7. Part of a complex with DAXX, MDM2 and USP7. Interacts with MDM2; the interaction is independent of p53/TP53. Interacts with DAXX; the interaction is direct and independent of MDM2 and p53/TP53. Interacts with FOXO4; the interaction is enhanced in presence of hydrogen peroxide and occurs independently of p53/TP53. Interacts with p53/TP53; the interaction is enhanced in response to DNA damage; the interaction is impaired by TSPYL5. Interacts with PTEN; the interaction is direct. Interacts with UBXN6. Interacts with ATXN1 and the strength of interaction is influenced by the length of the poly-Gln region in ATXN1. A weaker interaction seen with mutants having longer poly-Gln regions. Interacts with KIAA1530/UVSSA. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 interact with herpesvirus 1 trans-acting transcriptional protein ICP0/VMW110. Interacts with Epstein-Barr virus EBNA1. EBNA1 shows a 10-fold higher affinity than p53/TP53 and can compete with it for USP7 binding. Binding to ICP0/VMW110 may modulate the substrate specificity or activity of USP7 to stabilize viral proteins. Interacts with MEX3C and antagonizes its ability to degrade mRNA. Interacts with DNMT1 and UHRF1.
    Domain: The C-terminus plays a role in its oligomerization (By similarity).
    Subcellular location: Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Nucleus, PML body. Note=Present in a minority of ND10 nuclear bodies. Association with ICP0/VMW110 at early times of infection leads to an increased proportion of USP7-containing ND10. Colocalizes with ATXN1 in the nucleus. Colocalized with DAXX in speckled structures. Colocalized with PML and PTEN in promyelocytic leukemia protein (PML) nuclear bodies.
    Tissue specificity: Widely expressed. Overexpressed in prostate cancer.
    Post-translational: Isoform 1: Phosphorylated. Isoform 1 is phosphorylated at positions Ser-18 and Ser-963. Isoform 2: Not phosphorylated.
    Isoform 1: Polyneddylated. Isoform 2: Not Polyneddylated.
    Isoform 1 and isoform 2: Not sumoylated.
    Isoform 1 and isoform 2: Polyubiquitinated by herpesvirus 1 trans-acting transcriptional protein ICP0/VMW110; leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation. Isoform 1: Ubiquitinated at Lys-869.
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the peptidase C19 family.
    Contains 1 MATH domain.
    General information above from UniProt

    Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 7, also known as Ubiquitin thioesterase 7, Herpesvirus-associated ubiquitin-specific protease, Ubiquitin-specific-processing protease 7, USP7 and HAUSP, is a widely expressed protein which belongs to the peptidase C19 family. USP7 is a member of the family of deubiquitinating enzymes. It is involved in the regulation of stress response pathways, epigenetic silencing and the progress of infections by DNA viruses. USP7 is a protein with a cysteine peptidase core, N- and C-terminal domains required for protein-protein interactions. USP7 contributes to epigenetic silencing of homeotic genes by Polycomb (Pc). USP7 cleaves ubiquitin fusion protein substrates. It deubiquitinates TP53/p53 and MDM2 and strongly stabilizes TP53 even in the presence of excess MDM2. USP7 also induces TP53-dependent cell growth repression and apoptosis. USP7 has key roles in the p53 pathway whereby it stabilizes both p53 and MDM2. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) regulatory protein ICP0 stimulates lytic infection and the reactivation of quiescent viral genomes. ICP0 interacts very strongly with USP7. USP7-mediated stabilization of ICP0 is dominant over ICP0-induced degradation of USP7 during productive HSV-1 infection. The biological significance of the ICP0-USP7 interaction may be most pronounced in natural infection situations, in which limited amounts of ICP0 are expressed.
