Ubiquitin-like protein 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the UBL5 gene.[1]

It has been shown that in C. elegans mitochondria treated to lower expression of certain electron transport chain proteins during the L3/L4 stage, its expression levels is higher leading to increased lifespans. [2]

Ubiquitin-like proteins (UBLs) are thought to be reversible modulators of protein function rather than protein degraders like ubiquitin (MIM 191339).[supplied by OMIM][1]
