Part Description

LP426538-7   Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase-L1
Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase-L1 (UCH-L1) is a protein that is involved in the metabolism of ubiquitin within neurons [PMID: 10848595] . Increases in blood UCH-L1 have been detected in the serum of mild and moderate TBI patients within an hour of injury [PMID: 22673263] . Levels measured within 4 hours of injury were significantly higher in those with TBI lesions on CT than those with a normal intracranial appearance on CT. Blood levels of UCH-L1 have been demonstrated to be able to discriminate mild TBI patients from patients without head injuries and, similar to GFAP, UCH-L1 levels were much higher in patients who required neurosurgical intervention [PMID: 22673263] .
