InE. coli, protein degradation plays important roles in regulating the levels of specific proteins and in eliminating damaged or abnormal proteins.E. coli possess a very large number of proteolytic enzymes distributed in the cytoplasm, the inner membrane, and the periplasm, but, with few exceptions, the physiological functions of these proteases are not known. More than 90% of the protein degradation occurring in the cytoplasm is energy-dependent, but the activities of mostE. coli proteases in… CONTINUE READING
