UCH-L1 (ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase isozyme L1) was the first discovered de-ubiquitinating enzyme which implicates in processing of ubiquitin precursors and also of ubiquitinated proteins. UCH-L1 is a thiol protease that recognizes and hydrolyzes a peptide bond at C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin. It also binds to free monoubiquitin and prevents its degradation in lysosomes. Localized in cytoplasm and ER membrane as lipid-anchor, UCH-L1 expression is restricted to brain, peripheral nerves, endocrine tissues and gonads of both sexes etc. UCH-L1 deletion in mice leads to fatal neurodegenerative disorder known as gracile axonal dystrophy and it is down-regulated in brains from Parkinson as well as Alzheimer disease patients. Expression outside of neuro-endocrine tissues is found in various cancers including B-cell lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and lung cancer. In transgenic mouse model, UCH-L1 has been demonstrated as an oncogene that causes malignancies by boosting AKT signalling. Furthermore, UCH-L1 has been shown to interfere with ubiquitination of RAPTOR which is catalyzed by DDB1-Cul4 E3 ligase complex, leading to loss of mTORC1 integrity accompanied by a concurrent increase in mTORC2, likely due to increased availability of free mTOR.
