Targeted turnover of proteins is a key element in the regulation of practically all basic cellular processes. The underlying physicochemical and/or sequential signals, however, are not fully understood. This issue is particularly pertinent in light of the recent recognition that intrinsically unstructured/disordered proteins, common in eukaryotic cells, are extremely susceptible to proteolytic degradation in vitro. The in vivo half‐lives of proteins were determined recently in a high‐throughput… Expand
Context‐dependent resistance to proteolysis of intrinsically disordered proteins
TLDR
The emerging picture appears to be that IDPs are inherently sensitive to proteasomal degradation along the lines of the “degradation by default” model, however, available data sets of intracellular protein half‐lives suggest that intrinsic disorder does not imply a significantly shorter half‐life.

Intrinsically Disordered Segments Affect Protein Half-Life in the Cell and during Evolution
TLDR
Natural variation in the length and position of disordered segments may affect protein half-life and could serve as an underappreciated source of genetic variation with important phenotypic consequences. Expand
Sequence‐based analysis of protein degradation rates
TLDR
It is shown that simple sequence features suffice to obtain predictive models of which the output correlates reasonably well with the experimentally measured values, and that intrinsic disorder may have a larger effect than previously reported. Expand
The relationship between experimentally validated intracellular human protein stability and the features of its solvent accessible surface
TLDR
This paper investigated in depth the intrinsic factors affecting the protein degradation based on the sequence and structure features and found that the specific features of the solvent accessible surface residues are the key factors affecting intracellular protein stability. Expand
Sequence-based analysis of protein degradation rates.
TLDR
This work exploits two reliable datasets of experimental protein degradation rates to learn models and uncover determinants of protein degradation, with particular focus on properties that can be derived from the sequence. Expand
Interplay of Structural Disorder and Short Binding Elements in the Cellular Chaperone Function of Plant Dehydrin ERD14
TLDR
The data suggest that the cellular function of ERD14 is compatible with its residual structural disorder in vivo, and in-cell NMR experiments performed in E. coli cells show that the protective activity is associated with a largely disordered structural state with conserved, short sequence motifs. Expand
Regulation of cell division by intrinsically unstructured proteins: intrinsic flexibility, modularity, and signaling conduits.
TLDR
The authors' structural, biophysical, and biochemical studies of two IUPs, p21 and p27, which regulate the mammalian cell division cycle by inhibiting cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks) are discussed, which constitute a conduit for transmission of proliferative signals via post-translational modifications.

A Review on the Mode of the Interactions of Bacterial Proteases with Their Substrates
Maintaining the quality of cellular proteome is a huge challenge to living cell as the proper functioning of protein directly affects proper functioning as well as survival of the cell. Due toExpand
Intrinsic protein flexibility in regulation of cell proliferation: advantages for signaling and opportunities for novel therapeutics.
TLDR
Two IDPs, p21 and p27, which regulate the mammalian cell division cycle by inhibiting cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks) and Myc, which is a DNA binding transcription factor which critically drives cell proliferation in many cell types and is often deregulated in cancer are discussed. Expand

TLDR
This short review summarizes the current understanding of mechanisms of protein breakdown in eukaryotes and evaluates potential molecular determinants of protein half‐lives and partially unfolded proteins that are partially unfolded and have an unblocked amino‐terminal amino acid with a bulky side chain. Expand
Intrinsic unstructuredness and abundance of PEST motifs in eukaryotic proteomes
TLDR
A proteome‐wide study in completely sequenced eukaryotes with predicted unfolded and folded proteins shows that PEST proteins make up a large fraction of unfolded dataset as compared with the folded proteins and shows that predicted PEST regions do not exhibit any preference to be localized in the C terminals of proteins, as reported earlier.

TLDR
Novel advances in the rapidly advancing field of IUPs are reviewed, with the major attention directed to the evidence of their unfolded character in vivo, the interplay of their residual structure and their various functional modes and the functional benefits their malleable structural state provides.

Operational definition of intrinsically unstructured protein sequences based on susceptibility to the 20S proteasome
TLDR
It is shown that 20S proteasomes digest IUP sequences, under conditions in which native, and even molten globule states, are resistant, and that protein–protein interactions can protect IUPs against 20s proteasomal action. Expand
An unstructured initiation site is required for efficient proteasome-mediated degradation
TLDR
The initiation site is identified as a novel component of the targeting signal, which is required to engage the proteasome unfolding machinery efficiently and accelerate proteolysis of tightly folded proteins. Expand
Local structural disorder imparts plasticity on linear motifs
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LMs in average are embedded in locally unstructured regions, while their amino acid composition and charge/hydropathy properties exhibit a mixture characteristic of folded and disordered proteins. Expand

TLDR
This model suggests that formation of protein complexes masks the unstructured regions, making them inaccessible to the 20S proteasomes, providing molecular explanations for a recent theoretical "cooperative stability" principle and provokes new predictions and explanations in the field of protein regulation and functionality.

The N-end rule pathway for regulated proteolysis: prokaryotic and eukaryotic strategies.
TLDR
The N-end rule states that the half-life of a protein is determined by the nature of its N-terminal residue, and recent findings indicate that prokaryotes and eukaryotes share common principles of substrate recognition. Expand

Analysis of a simple dynamic protein production model reveals a remarkable correlation between transcriptional regulation and protein half-life within some groups of coregulated genes, suggesting that cells coordinate these two processes to achieve uniform effects on protein abundances. Expand
