The REG homologs, alpha, beta and gamma, activate mammalian proteasomes in distinct ways. REGalpha and REGbeta activate the trypsin-like, chymotrypsin-like and peptidylglutamyl-preferring active sites, whereas REGgamma only activates the proteasome's trypsin-like subunit. The three REG homologs differ in carboxyl-terminal sequences that are located next to activation loops on their proteasome binding surface. To assess the importance of these carboxyl-terminal sequences in the activation of… CONTINUE READING
