Scientific Background : USP20 (ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 20) is a cysteine protease deubiquitinating enzyme belonging to the ubiquitin-specific protease (USP) family and deubiquitinates several proteins such as thyronine deiodinase type 2 (D2), Hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF1α), and β2 adrenergic receptor. It is involved in ADRB2 recycling and resensitization, regulating thyroid hormone regulation and stabilizing and enhancing HIF1A (1). USP20 was also identified to be a substrate of the VHL (von Hippel-Lindau disease) protein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, as it is involved in the ubiquitination and degradation of HIF1α subunits (2).
