Hilt W and Wolf DH (1996) Proteasomes: destruction as a programme. Trends Biochem Sci 21(3):96-102
Abstract: Proteasomes are large multi-subunit protease complexes that selectively degrade intracellular proteins. Most of the proteins removed by these proteases are tagged for destruction by ubiquitination. Proteasomes havea role to play in controlling cellular processes, such as metabolism and the cell cycle, through signal-mediated proteolysis of key enzymes and regulatory proteins. They also operate in the stress response, by removing abnormal proteins, and in the immune response, by generating antigenic peptides.
