26435193 SMURF2 is a critical target of USP15 in the TGF-beta signaling pathway.
26061460 our data demonstrate that USP15 acts as a negative regulator of RIG-I signaling via DUB-dependent and independent mechanisms.
24939309 Data suggest that ubiquitin specific peptidase 15 (USP15) may play a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis through regulating the type I TGFbeta receptor (TbetaR-I)/Smad7 pathway.
24852371 These data identify USP15 as an antagonist of Parkin and suggest that USP15 inhibition could be a therapeutic strategy for PD cases caused by reduced Parkin levels.
24850914 Data show that USP15 enhances BMP-induced phosphorylation of SMAD1 by interacting with and deubiquitylating ALK3.
24777531 USP15 deficiency promoted T cell activation in vitro and enhanced T cell responses to bacterial infection and tumor challenge in vivo.
24526689 SART3 recruits ubH2B, which may be evicted from DNA during transcription, for deubiquitination by Usp15
24399297 Data indicate ubiquitin-specific protease 15 (USP15) as a critical regulator of the tripartite motif protein 25 (TRIM25)- and RNA sensor retinoic acid-inducible gene-I (RIG-I)-mediated antiviral immune response.
23727018 USP15 specifically deubiquitinates Keap1, which suppresses the Nrf2 pathway.
23708518 The deubiquitylase USP15 stabilizes newly synthesized REST and rescues its expression at mitotic exit.
23105109 The dominant effect of prolonged USP15 depletion upon signal amplitude is due to a decrease in CRAF levels while allowing for the possibility that USP15 may also function to dampen MAPK signaling through direct stabilization of BRAP.
22344298 Our results show that USP15 regulates the TGF-beta pathway and is a key factor in glioblastoma pathogenesis
22001210 structure of the double domain from USP15

21848306 A 1.5 A resolution crystal structure of the human USP15 N-terminal domain revealed a 80 A elongated arrangement with the domains aligned in tandem.
21219870 These results indicate that USP15 is involved in the regulation of hypertrophic responses in cardiac muscle through transcriptional and post-translational modulation of SLIM1.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19576224 Results suggest a role of COP9 signalosome (CSN)-mediated deneddylation in the formation of the beta-catenin-degrading supercomplex and the protection of complex-bound adenomatous polyposis coli via CSN-associated USP15.
19553310 These results implicate USP15 directly in the regulation of E6 protein stability and suggest that ubiquitylated E6 could be a substrate for USP15 ubiquitin peptidase activity.

16005295 A functional Zn finger of USP15 is needed to maintain a conformation essential for disassembling poly-Ub chains, a prerequisite for rescuing the E3 ligase Rbx1.
