Cylindromatosis, also known as CYLD, is a human gene.
This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein with three cytoskeletal-associated protein-glycine-conserved domains that functions as a deubiquitinating enzyme. Mutations in this gene have been associated with cylindromatosis, multiple familial trichoepithelioma, and Brooke-Spiegler syndrome. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.
