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. Alternative names: Neuron cytoplasmic protein 9.5, PARK5, PGP9.5, PGP 9.5, Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase isozyme L1, Ubiquitin thioesterase L1, UCH-L1.
