Cotranslational ubiquitination of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator in vitro.

Ubiquitination is a covalent protein modification that can target proteins in eukaryotic cells for degradation by the 26 S proteasome. Substrates for this degradation pathway include abnormal proteins that arise from misfolding and/or mutation. How and when the ubiquitination machinery recognizes misfolded proteins and targets them for degradation remains… CONTINUE READING
