This biomarker is also known as:
  • UBC,
  • Ubiquitin,
  • UBA52,
  • RPS27A,
  • UBB,


The ubiquitin protein was named due to its ubiquitous presence in the human body. This small protein, comprised of 76 amino acids, is coded for by a family of genes whose translation products are fusion proteins. The four genes that are known to code for ubiquitin are UBB, UBC, UBA52, and RPS27A. Ubiquitin molecules are often bound to other proteins as a marker for degradation.

Performance Comment

Ubiquitin belongs to a 9-member panel that provides a quantitative measure of the probability of having lung cancer that goes beyond the histological evaluation of preinvasive lesions. The identified members of the panel are TMSB4X (Thymosin beta-4), Ubiquitin, des-ubiquitin, ACBP, CSTA, Cytochrome C, and MIF.
