CLYD(redirected from ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase CYLD)
CLYDA gene on chromosome 16q12.1 that encodes a cytoplasmic protein with deubiquitinating activity and plays a key role in regulating pathways leading to NF-kappa-B activation, which affects cell survival, proliferation and differentiation.
CLYD mutations are causatively linked to cylindromatosis, multiple familial trichoepithelioma and Brooke-Spiegler syndrome.
