Proteasome

proteasome

(Science: cell biology) proteolytic complexes that degrade cytosolic and nuclear proteins. Implicated in aTP dependent ubiquitin protein complex degradation and in antigen processing in antigen presenting cells. The 20S proteasome (700 kD), essential in ATP ubiquitin degradation pathway, has 13-15 subunits each of which has three or four different peptidase activities. 26S proteasomes may be formed in an ATP dependent fashion from a 20S proteasome and additional components, CF1 (660 kD), CF2 (250 kD) and CF3 (600 kD).

Origin: Gr. Soma = body

I have got some BIG issues! forgive the long post

... The centromeric class II genes, previously known as immune-response genes, encode antigen presenting HLA-DR, DP and DQ molecules, but also proteasome (LMP) and peptide-transporter (TAP) genes. The MHC class III region contains many genes with varying functions. It has been proposed that ...

What does "deficient trafficking" means

I was reading a paper on disease mechanism where misfolding of a particular protein leads to its degradation by ubiquitin proteasome pathway and deficient trafficking to the lysosome. What does deficient trafficking means and overall what does this sentence means?? Kindly help me in ...

Re:

... seed proteins, but I'm not sure about auxins. If you inhibit transcription, overall level of all proteins will be decreased, but if you inhibit proteasome - degradative system for proteins, the levels will increase. Thus I would say: high levels 1, (2?), 6 middle level 7 low levels 3, 4, 5 Totally ...
