    basic FUNCTION
  • putative deubiquitinase (Shinawi 2009)
  • SNAI1 -mediated suppression of OTUD7A may have a key role in hepatocellular carcinoma malignancy
  • is a critical gene for brain function
  • major regulatory gene for DEL15Q13 syndrome that contribute to the disease mechanism through abnormal cortical neuron morphological development
  • putative deubiquitinating enzyme that localizes to dendritic spine compartments and has a protein-protein co-expression network that includes synaptic and dendritic signaling pathways
  • is the predominant gene regulating dendrite spine development
  • potential role of OTUD7A in regulation of dendritic spine density and glutamatergic synaptic transmission

    INTERACTION
    DNA binding
    RNA
    small molecule metal binding,
  • Zn2+
  • protein
  • SNAI1 binds to the promoter of the OTUD7A gene and mediates the direct consequence of OTUD7A repression
  • interacts with TRAF6 and cleaves the polyubiquitin from TRAF6 substrates
  • cell & other

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • Otud7a KO mice have deficits in cortical neuron dendritic spine density and glutamatergic transmission
  • Otud7a-null mice show reduced body weight, developmental delay, abnormal electroencephalography patterns and seizures, reduced ultrasonic vocalizations, decreased grip strength, impaired motor learning/motor coordination, and reduced acoustic startle (
