USP46(redirected from ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 46)
USP46A gene on chromosome 4q12 that encodes a deubiquitinase of the C19 peptidase family which plays a role in psychological behaviour, possibly by regulating GABA activity. USP46 is thought to deubiquitinate GAD1/GAD67; it has little activity by itself, requiring interaction with WDR48 to have a high activity.
