24560272 OTUB2 fine-tunes the speed of double-strand break-induced ubiquitination so that the appropriate DNA repair pathway is chosen
23515685 OTUB2 is a novel promoter of viability and insulin secretion in human beta cells. OTUB2 acts through the inhibition of NF-kappaB signalling.
19996094 Findings suggest that OTUB1 and OTUB2 negatively regulate virus-triggered type I IFN induction and cellular antiviral response by deubiquitinating TRAF3 and -6.
15258613 Data report the first crystal structure of an OTU superfamily protein, otubain 2, at 2.1 A resolution and propose a model for otubain-ubiquitin binding.
