How the genetic code is translated into proteins was a key focus of biological research before the 1980s, but how these proteins are degraded remained a neglected area. With the discovery of the lysosome, it was suggested that cellular proteins are degraded in this organelle. However, several independent lines of experimental evidence strongly indicated that non-lysosomal pathways have an important role in intracellular proteolysis, although their identity and mechanisms of action remained… CONTINUE READING
