Abstract

UCH-L1 is a member of the family of ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolases whose primary role is to hydrolyze small C-terminal adducts of ubiquitin to generate free ubiquitin monomers. Expression of UCH-L1 is highly specific to neurons and point mutations in this enzyme are associated with a hereditary form of Parkinson’s disease. Herein, we present the NMR backbone assignments of human UCH-L1, thus enabling future solution-state NMR spectroscopic studies on the structure and function of this important protein.
