Ubiquitin-Proteasome System in Disease Part 2


Edited by John Mayer and Rob Layfield

  1. The coordinated regulation of cellular protein synthesis and degradation is essential for normal cellular functioning. The ubiquitin proteasome system mediates the intracellular protein degradation that is req...
