  • FunctionUbiquitin-protein hydrolase involved both in the processing of ubiquitin precursors and of ubiquitinated proteins. This enzyme is a thiol protease that recognizes and hydrolyzes a peptide bond at the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin. Also binds to free monoubiquitin and may prevent its degradation in lysosomes. The homodimer may have ATP-independent ubiquitin ligase activity.
  • Tissue specificityFound in neuronal cell bodies and processes throughout the neocortex (at protein level). Expressed in neurons and cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system and their tumors. Weakly expressed in ovary. Down-regulated in brains from Parkinson disease and Alzheimer disease patients.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in UCHL1 are the cause of Parkinson disease type 5 (PARK5) [MIM:613643]; also known as Parkinson disease autosomal dominant 5. PARK5 is a complex neurodegenerative disorder with manifestations ranging from typical Parkinson disease to dementia with Lewy bodies. Clinical features include parkinsonian symptoms (resting tremor, rigidity, postural instability and bradykinesia), dementia, diffuse Lewy body pathology, autonomic dysfunction, hallucinations and paranoia.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C12 family.
  • Post-translational
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. About 30% of total UCHL1 is associated with membranes in brain.

Anti-PGP9.5 antibody - Neuronal Marker images

  • ab10404 at a dilution of 1/1000, detecting PGP9.5 in cortical neurons (Alexa 488 secondary at 1/2000) on rat brain tissue sections prepared for free floating IHC (4% PFA fixed, 30µm thick coronal sections; see protocol link for detailed description). Image taken with a 20x objective. No labeling observed following omission of primary antibody.

    Sections were viewed using an Axioplan 2 Imaging microscope (Imaging Associates) fitted with 10x, 20x and 40x Plan-Neofluorobjectives (Zeiss, Germany) and images were taken using a AxioCam Hrm digital camera (Zeiss, Germany) and AxioVision software (Imaging Associates).

  • ab10404 at a 1/500 dilution staining human cancer prostate tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections).Following heat mediated antigen retrieval the tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 20% serum. The tissue was incubated with the primary antibody for 1 hour and then with an HRP conjugated rabbit polyclonal antibody.

    Predicted band size : 26.8 kDa
    Observed band size : 27 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 48 kDa,70 kDa,73 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • Immunofluorescence analysis of mouse gonocytes, staining PGP9.5 with ab10404.

    Cells were permabilized with 0.025% Triton X-100 and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were incubated with primary antibody (1/20) overnight at 4°C. An AlexaFluor®594-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you for contacting us.

According to UniGene, the RNA for this protein can be found quite abundantly in human pancreas. Therefore, it shouldn't be a problem to find a suitable antibody which has been tested in human and IHC-P.
