UCH-L1 (PGP9.5) is a probable deubiquitinase that is involved both in the processing of ubiquitin precursors and of ubiquitinated proteins. 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.
