Cytosolic carboxypeptidase-like protein 5; Metallocarboxypeptidase that mediates protein deglutamylation. Specifically catalyzes the deglutamylation of the branching point glutamate side chains generated by post- translational glutamylation in proteins such as tubulins. In contrast, it is not able to act as a long-chain deglutamylase that shortens long polyglutamate chains, a process catalyzed by AGTPBP1/CCP1, AGBL2/CCP2, AGBL3/CCP3, AGBL1/CCP4 and AGBL4/CCP6. Mediates deglutamylation of CGAS/MB21D1, regulating the antiviral activity of CGAS/MB21D1.
