Human Gene OTUD7A (uc001zfq.3) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens OTU domain containing 7A (OTUD7A), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_130901): The protein encoded by this gene is a deubiquitinizing enzyme and possible tumor suppressor. The encoded protein acts on TNF receptor associated factor 6 (TRAF6) to control nuclear factor kappa B expression. However, this gene is downregulated by SNAIL1 in hepatocellular carcinoma cells, contributing to their progression and malignancy. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=OTU domain-containing protein 7A; EC=; AltName: Full=Zinc finger protein Cezanne 2;
FUNCTION: Has deubiquitinating activity that is directed towards 'Lys-48' or 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitin chains. Hydrolyzes both linear and branched forms of polyubiquitin (By similarity).
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).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm (By similarity). Nucleus (By similarity).
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the peptidase C64 family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 A20-type zinc finger.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 OTU domain.

    Sekar Kathiresan et al. BMC medical genetics 2007, A genome-wide association study for blood lipid phenotypes in the Framingham Heart Study., BMC medical genetics. [PubMed 17903299]
    Using a 100K genome-wide scan, we have generated a set of putative associations for common sequence variants and lipid phenotypes. Validation of selected hypotheses in additional samples did not identify any new loci underlying variability in blood lipids. Lack of replication may be due to inadequate statistical power to detect modest quantitative trait locus effects (i.e., <1% of trait variance explained) or reduced genomic coverage of the 100K array. GWAS in FHS using a denser genome-wide genotyping platform and a better-powered replication strategy may identify novel loci underlying blood lipids.
  2. Echocardiography
    Ramachandran S Vasan et al. BMC medical genetics 2007, Genome-wide association of echocardiographic dimensions, brachial artery endothelial function and treadmill exercise responses in the Framingham Heart Study., BMC medical genetics. [PubMed 17903301]
    In hypothesis-generating GWAS of echocardiography, ETT and BA vascular function in a moderate-sized community-based sample, we identified several SNPs that are candidates for replication attempts and we provide a web-based GWAS resource for the research community.
  3. Mortality
    Alanna C Morrison et al. Circulation. Cardiovascular genetics 2010, Genomic variation associated with mortality among adults of European and African ancestry with heart failure: the cohorts for heart and aging research in genomic epidemiology consortium., Circulation. Cardiovascular genetics. [PubMed 20400778]
    This study identified a novel locus associated with all-cause mortality among individuals of European ancestry with HF. This finding warrants additional investigation, including replication, in other studies of HF.

The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
