Scientific Background : OTUB2 (Otubain 2) is a deubiquinating cysteine proteases that is encoded by the OTUB2 gene and belongs to the ovarian tumor (OTU) protein superfamily. Like other DUBs, otubains cleave proteins precisely at the ubiquitin-protein bond to cleave conjugated ubiquitin from proteins, which may play a role in the regulation of protein turnover by inhibiting degradation (1). OTUB-2 mediated deubiquitination of TRAF3 and TRAF6 may be involved in the regulation of virus-triggered type I interferon (IFN)2 induction pathways (2).
