UCHL1 [ENSP00000284440]

Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal esterase L1 (ubiquitin thiolesterase); Ubiquitin-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; Parkinson disease associated genes
