Ubiquitin-proteasome system

The ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) is a crucial protein degradation system in eukaryotes.  The ubiquitin-proteasome system consists of many factors that include E3 ubiquitin ligases, ubiquitin hydrolases, ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like molecules, and the proteasome itself.  The proteasomal degradation pathway is essential for many cellular processes, including the cell cycle, the regulation of gene expression, and responses to oxidative stress.
