The UCHL1, is also called PARK5 or neuronal-specific protein gene product 9.5, is a carboxyl-terminal ubiquitin hydrolase regulating ubiquitin dependent signaling pathways, recently suggested as a tumor suppressor. UCHL1 is expressed predominantly in neurons (1), representing 1 to 2% of total soluble brain protein (2), as well as in testis and ovary. In vivo, UCHL1 has been shown to be involved in the regulation of the ubiquitin pool, apoptosis, learning and memory, and its absence in mice because of spontaneous intragenic deletions yields phenotypes with neurological defects (3). Mutations in UCHL1 have been discovered in a German family with Parkinson disease (PD); a point mutation near the active site that changes Ile 93 to Met (I93M), which caused a partial loss of the catalytic activity of this thiol protease. This mutation has been linked to an increased risk of developing an autosomal-dominant form of PD (4). Based on the abundance in the CNS, UCHL1 has been proposed as a candidate biomarker for brain injury and ischemic strokes. It was demonstrated that UCHL1 was released from injured neurons and flow into the cerebrospinal fluid and eventually into circulating blood (5).
