General description

ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Anti-PGP9.5/UCHL1, clone 3C13 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1664, is a recombinant Rabbit monoclonal antibody that targets PGP9.5/UCHL1 and is tested for use in Affinity Binding Assay, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.

Target description

Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase isozyme L1 (UniProt: P09936; also known as EC:, UCH-L1, Neuron cytoplasmic protein 9.5, PGP 9.5, PGP9.5, Ubiquitin thioesterase L1) is encoded by the UCHL1 gene (Gene ID: 7345) in human. UCH-L1 is a member of the peptidase C12 family that can exist as a monomer or homodimer. It is expressed in neurons and cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system and their tumors and is detected in neuronal cell bodies and processes throughout the neocortex. It displays a weak expression in ovary. About 30% of total UCH-L1 is reported to be associated with membranes in brain. Its levels are shown to be down regulated in brains from Parkinson disease and Alzheimer disease patients. UCH-L1 is a thiol protease that recognizes and hydrolyzes a peptide bond at the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin and is involved both in the processing of ubiquitin precursors and of ubiquitinated proteins. It also binds to free monoubiquitin and may prevent its degradation in lysosomes. The homodimeric form may have ATP-independent ubiquitin ligase activity. Mutations in UCHL1 gene are known to cause Parkinson disease 5, a complex neurodegenerative disorder with manifestations ranging from typical Parkinson disease to dementia with Lewy bodies. Some mutations in this gene are also linked to spastic paraplegia 79, where patients display a form of spastic paraplegia, which is characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Physical form

Purified recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.


30 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
