Ubiquitin-dependent proteolysis ensures that specific protein functions are turned off at the right time, in the right place, and in a unidirectional fashion. The high substrate specificity of the system is determined by a large family of ubiquitin ligases, which competes with the protein kinases to be the largest family of enzymes in mammals. Given the(More)
The anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) is a multisubunit ubiquitin ligase that acts as a key regulator in the progression through mitosis (when mostly in complex with Cdc20) and as a stabilizer of the G1 phase (when in complex with Cdh1). Cdh1 is an activator of APC/C, and it has previously been reported that it is capable of mediating its own(More)
