Using Deubiquitylating Enzymes as Research Tools
Ubiquitin is synthesized in eukaryotes as a linear fusion with a normal peptide bond either to itself or to one of two ribosomal proteins and, in the latter case, enhances the yield of these ribosomal proteins and/or their incorporation into the ribosome. Such fusions are cleaved rapidly by a variety of deubiquitylating enzymes. Expression of heterologous proteins as linear ubiquitin fusions has been found to significantly increase the yield of unstable or poorly expressed proteins in either...[Show more]
