Native UchL1 (PGP9.5) protein from brain was used as immunogen to generate the antibody (Day & Thompson, 1986).
Cytoplasmic, Endoplasmic Reticulum membrane
This MAb reacts with a protein of 20-30kDa, identified as PGP9.5, also known as ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase-1 (UchL1). Initially, PGP9.5 expression in normal tissues was reported in neurons and neuroendocrine cells but later it was found in distal renal tubular epithelium, spermatogonia, Leydig cells, oocytes, melanocytes, prostatic secretory epithelium, ejaculatory duct cells, epididymis, mammary epithelial cells, Merkel cells, and dermal fibroblasts. Furthermore, immunostaining for PGP9.5 has been shown in a wide variety of mesenchymal neoplasms as well. A mutation in PGP9.5 gene is believed to cause a form of Parkinson's disease.

Human Chromosome Location: 4p13 Fixation in 95% ethanol/5% acetic acid for 2-3 hours prior to paraffin embedding is recommended. Specimens which have not been fixed in acetic acid/alcohol require pre-treatment with citrate buffer: for example, unmask of the target epitope by boiling the tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 min followed by cooling at room temp for 20 min. This antibody has been reported to work in IHC-Frozen as reported in the literature (Bottner et al. Drew et al.) and (Sugimoto et al. J Hyperten).
In Simple Western only 10 - 15 uL of the recommended dilution is used per data point. Separated by Size. The 7mL size is a pre-diluted size and no additional dilutions are required before using this item for the intended application.
25 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
UchL1 (ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase), also known as PGP9.5 (protein gene product 9.5) and PARK5, is a neuronal biomarker and ubquitin system protein (reviewed in Day and Thompson, 2010). UchL1 is a highly conserved antibody and has shown that it is expressed in neurons and neuroendocrine cells in vertebrates where it comprises about 5-10% of soluble cytoplasmic proteins. A minor proportion of UchL1 in brain is tightly bound to the membrane. UchL1 antibody is also expressed in human oocytes and spermatogonia. It is important to note that the use of an antibody as a biomarker in this case does not imply that an antibody defines absolute tissue specificity. Rather, it means that PGP9.5 is expressed in neurons and neuroendrocine cells at significantly higher levels than in other cell types. Functionally, UchL1 antibody is a thiol protease enzyme that recognizes and hydrolyzes a peptide bond at the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin. UchL1 antibody also binds to free monoubiquitin and inhibits monoubiquitin degradation in lysosomes; it may function to stabilize monoubiquitin within neurons. A mutation in the UchL1 gene has been found to cause a form of Parkinson's disease, and this discovery has spurred considerable research interest in UchL1 and to its alternative name of PARK5. Antibody to UchL1 is widely used as an immunohistochemical marker of nerves and neuroendocrine cells. The UchL1 clone 31A3 antibody stains neuronal cell bodies and axons in the central and peripheral nervous systems as well as small nerve fibers in peripheral tissues, including epidermal tissues (Day & Thompson, 2010). The antibody also stains neuroendrocrine cells in the kidney, pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, and tumors of the diffuse neuroendocrine system. This antibody has also identified UchL1 expression in renal tubule spermatogonia, testis, ovary, and both pregnant and non-pregnant corpus luteum. In western blots, the antibody identifies UchL1 as a band of approximately 20-30 kDa. The antibody is specific to UchL1 and does not cross-react with the closely related UchL3 protein (Yi et al, 2007).
