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… Expand

Lost to translation: when autophagy targets mature ribosomes.

Peter and co-workers discovered a selective autophagic pathway that targets ribosomes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that depends on Ubp3 ubiquitin protease and its partner Bre5, suggesting that the number of ribosome can be adjusted to match the needs of the cell. Expand

The ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic pathway: destruction for the sake of construction.
TLDR
It is clear now that degradation of cellular proteins is a highly complex, temporally controlled, and tightly regulated process that plays major roles in a variety of basic pathways during cell life and death as well as in health and disease. Expand
Proteasomes and their kin: proteases in the machine age
'Chambered proteases', including the eukaryotic 26S proteasome, use the energy of ATP to drive the unfolding and translocation of a polypeptide substrate into a chamber of sequestered proteolyticExpand
Cyclin is degraded by the ubiquitin pathway
TLDR
Cyclin degradation is the key step governing exit from mitosis and progress into the next cell cycle, and anaphase may be triggered by the recognition of cyclin by the ubiquitin-conjugating system. Expand
Degradation of nuclear oncoproteins by the ubiquitin system in vitro.
TLDR
The relative sensitivity to degradation of various E1A mutants in vivo is also maintained in the cell-free system, suggesting that the ubiquitin pathway may play a role in the cellular degradation of these proteins as well. Expand
A Subcomplex of the Proteasome Regulatory Particle Required for Ubiquitin-Conjugate Degradation and Related to the COP9-Signalosome and eIF3
TLDR
The lid subunits share sequence motifs with components of the COP9/signalosome complex and eIF3, suggesting that these functionally diverse particles have a common evolutionary ancestry. Expand
ATP-dependent incorporation of 20S protease into the 26S complex that degrades proteins conjugated to ubiquitin.
TLDR
It seems that the 20S protease is the "catalytic core" of the 26S complex of the ubiquitin proteolytic pathway, a complex of low molecular weight subunits widely distributed in eukaryotic cells. Expand
STUDIES OF THE SELECTIVITY AND MECHANISMS OF INTRACELLULAR PROTEIN DEGRADATION
TLDR
In mammalian tissues, proteins with acidic isoelectric points are degraded more rapidly than neutral or basic ones, and Isoelectric point and subunit molecular weight are independent factors influencing protein degradative rates. Expand
A protein conjugation system essential for autophagy
TLDR
It is shown here that a unique covalent-modification system is essential for autophagy to occur, the first report of a protein unrelated to ubiquitin that uses a ubiquitination-like conjugation system. Expand
