Proper functioning of the protein-folding quality control network depends on the network's ability to discern diverse structural perturbations to the native states of its protein substrates. Despite the centrality of the detection of misfolded states to cell home-ostasis, very little is known about the exact sequence and structural features that mark a(More)
Protein elimination by the ubiquitin-proteasome system requires the presence of a cis-acting degradation signal. Efforts to discern degradation signals of misfolded proteasome substrates thus far revealed a general mechanism whereby the exposure of cryptic hydrophobic motifs provides a degradation determinant. We have previously characterized such a(More)
