The most significant complication of testicular ischaemia is loss of the testis, which may lead to infertility. Testicular ischaemia damages protein degradation pathways which, together with the overproduction of damaged proteins and consequent upregulation of ubiquitin-conjugated protein aggregates. Despite recent advances, the factors leading to(More)
BACKGROUND The ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) is a key player in regulating many cellular processes via proteasomal degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. Recently published data show that Jab1/CSN5 interacts with p97/VCP and controls the ubiquitination status of proteins bound to p97/VCP in mouse and human cells. However, coexpression of p97/VCP and(More)
In this study, we aimed to investigate the distribution pattern of ubiquitin and p97/VCP in the rat retina during postnatal development. Eyeballs from 1-, 4-, 10-, 36- and 72-week-old rats were examined by immunohistochemistry, and protein colocalization was determined by immunofluorescence microscopy. In the 1-week-old rat retina, p97/VCP was strongly(More)
