    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION
    basic FUNCTION
  • can cleave ubiquitin from ubiquitinated substrates
  • function of USP42 is required to allow the rapid activation of p53-dependent transcription and a TP53-dependent cell-cycle arrest in response to stress
  • likely contributing to the repair and recovery of cells from mild or transient damage
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • USP42 forms a direct complex with TP53 and controls level of ubiquitination during the early phase of the response to a range of stress signals
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • is a DUB that interacts with and deubiquitinates TP53
