Structural Determinants Of Siah Ubiquitin Ligase Complexes

Grant number: 251662

Abstract

Controlled degradation of cellular proteins is an important process. The turnover of proteins is a fine balance between protein expression and degradation and alterations can control many cellular processes such as mitosis and intracellular signaling. Whilst a lot of research has been directed at understanding protein expression in response to stimuli such as hormones, stress etc. little has been known about the mechanisms for targeting protein degradation. In recent years it has been shown that proteins can be modified by the addition of a signaling protein called ubiquitin, and it is this modified form that is recognised for degradation. The degradation of these proteins occurs within a la..
