The specificity of proteasomes: impact on MHC class I processing and presentation of antigens
It is found that polypeptide processing is remarkably conserved among proteasomes of enkaryotic origin and that invertebrate proteasome can efficiently produce known high‐copy MHC class I ligands, suggesting evolutionary adaptation of the transporter associated with antigen processing and MHCclass I to ancient constraints imposed by proteasomal protein’ degradation.
Crystal Structure of an Archaeal Pentameric Riboflavin Synthase in Complex with a Substrate Analog Inhibitor
The topology of the two bound ligands at the active site is well in line with the known stereochemistry of a pentacyclic adduct of 6,7-dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine that has been shown to serve as a kinetically competent intermediate of trimeric and pentameric riboflavin synthases.
