Sowa ME and Harper JW (2006) From loops to chains: unraveling the mysteries of polyubiquitin chain specificity and processivity. ACS Chem Biol 1(1):20-4
Abstract: Regulated protein degradation via polyubiquitination controls almost every aspect of eukaryotic cellular biology; however, the precise mechanism by which specifically linked polyubiquitin chains are formed on target proteins as well as how the processivity of chain elongation is achieved remains a mystery. Recent work using the yeast ubiquitin ligase SCF(Cdc4) and the ubiquitin conjugating enzyme, Cdc34, has helped to answer these questions by identifying the determinants of lysine-48 specific ubiquitin chain polymerization.
