General description

Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1 (UCH-L1) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 4p13. It is a 223 amino acid deubiquitinating enzyme, expressed highly in neurons.


synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 202-216 located near the C-terminus of rat UCH-L1, conjugated to KLH. This sequence is identical in human, mouse, bovine, porcine, and guinea pig UCH-L1. No homology is found with other known UCH-L isoforms.


Anti-Ubiquitin C-terminal Hydrolase L1 (RA-15) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunoblotting.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1 (UCH-L1) hydrolyze C-terminal ubiquityl esters and amides in vitro, which is an essential reaction during cytoplasmic protein degradation. peptide-ubiquityl amides are the most favorable substrates. UCH-L1 also acts as a ubiquitin (Ub) ligase. Mutation in the gene is associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson′s disease, spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) and Huntington′s disease.
