Protein Information
Name UCHL1
Function Ubiquitin-protein hydrolase involved both in the processing of ubiquitin precursors and of ubiquitinated proteins. This enzyme is a thiol protease that recognizes and hydrolyzes a peptide bond at the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin. Also binds to free monoubiquitin and may prevent its degradation in lysosomes. The homodimer may have ATP-independent ubiquitin ligase activity.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Lipid-anchor. Note=About 30% of total UCHL1 is associated with membranes in brain
Tissue Location Found in neuronal cell bodies and processes throughout the neocortex (at protein level). Expressed in neurons and cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system and their tumors Weakly expressed in ovary. Down-regulated in brains from Parkinson disease and Alzheimer disease patients

Protein ubiquitination and Deubiquitination are reversible processes catalyzed by ubiquitinating enzymes (UBEs) and deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs). DUBs are categorized into 5 subfamilies: USP, UCH, OTU, MJD, and JAMM. UCHL1, UCHL3, UCHL5/UCH37, and BRCA-1-associated protein-1 (BAP1) belong to the UCH family of DUBs, which all possess a conserved catalytic domain (UCH domain) of about 230 amino acids. Although UCHL1 and UCHL3 are the most closely related UCH family members with about 53% identity, their biochemical properties differ in that UCHL1 binds monoubiquitin and UCHL3 shows dual specificity toward both ubiquitin (Ub) and NEDD8, a Ub-like molecule. UCHL1 (PGP9.5) is a 25 kDa protein; it is highly specific to neurons and to cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system and their tumors. It comprises >1% of total brain protein but is almost absent from other tissues. It has been implicated both in Parkinson’s disease and in lung cancer.
