Our Anti-Ubiquitin C-terminal Hydrolase 1 (UCHL1) primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is chicken polyclonal. It detects bovine, human, mouse, pig, and rat Ubiquitin C-terminal Hydrolase 1 (UCHL1) and is total IgY fraction. It is great for use in WB, IHC, ICC.
Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase 1 (UCHL1) is also known as ubiquitin carboxyl esterase L1, ubiquitin thiolesterase, neuron-specific protein PGP9.5 and Park5. It was originally identified as a major component of the neuronal cytoplasm from 2-dimensional gel analysis of brain tissues, and was given the name PGP9.5 (1). It was later found that ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase enzyme activity was associated with the PGP9.5 protein (2). The ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolases cleave ubiquitin from other molecules. Regulation of the ubiquitin pathway is very important and many disease states are associated with defects in this pathway. Genetic knockout of UCHL1 in mice results in a motor neuron degeneration similar to the spontaneous gracile axonal dystrophy (gad) mutant mice (3). Point mutations in the UCHL1 gene are associated with some forms of human Parkinson's disease (4). Since UCHL1 is heavily expressed in neurons, it is released in large amounts following injury or degeneration, so the detection of UCHL1 in CSF and other bodily fluids can be used as a biomarker.

Recommended that the undiluted antibody be aliquoted into smaller working volumes (10-30 uL/vial depending on usage) upon arrival and stored long term at -20° C or -80° C, while keeping a working aliquot stored at 4° C for short term. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. Stable for at least 1 year.
