USP7 an enzyme that removes ubiquitin from its protein substrates. Binds to the herpes virus protein VMW110 that may therefore modulate its substrate specificity or activity to stabilize viral proteins. Regulates MDM2 and has a dynamic role in the p53-MDM2 pathway. Is reported to deubiquitinate and stabilize p53. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
