This thesis investigates the levels and localisation of cytoskeletal proteins in mouse cortical neurons following 26S proteasome dysfunction (Psmc1fl/fl;CaMKIIα-Cre). This study provides new insights into the role of the UPS in maintain cytoskeletal proteins that may be important in neurodegenerative disease. We found an early increase in neurofilaments following 26S proteasome dysfunction; before obvious changes in microtubule stability. An increased free/polymerised tubulin ratio was evident at later stages indicative of microtubule instability in Psmc1fl/fl;CaMKIIα-Cre mice. In addition, we found decreased levels of microtubule proteins, microtubule-associated proteins and detyrosinated-tubulin; with increased tyrosinated-tubulin following 26S proteasome dysfunction. These changes are contrary to decreased STMN expression observed in Psmc1fl/fl;CaMKIIα-Cre mice. We suggest that decreasing STMN may be part of a negative feedback loop to stabilize MT following 26S proteasome dysfunction. ...
26S proteasome non-ATPase regulatory subunit 14, also known as 26S proteasome non-ATPase subunit Rpn11, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the PSMD14 gene. This protein is one of the 19 essential subunits of a complete assembled 19S proteasome complex. Nine subunits Rpn3, Rpn5, Rpn6, Rpn7, Rpn8, Rpn9, Rpn11, SEM1(Yeast analogue for human protein DSS1), and Rpn12 form the lid sub complex of 19S regulatory particle for proteasome complex. The gene PSMD14 encodes one of 26S proteasome non-ATPase subunit. The human gene PSMD14 has 12 Exons and locates at chromosome band 2q24.2. The human protein 26S proteasome non-ATPase regulatory subunit 14 is 34.6 kDa in size and composed of 310 amino acids. The calculated theoretical pI of this protein is 6.06. 26S proteasome complex is usually consisted of a 20S core particle (CP, or 20S proteasome) and one or two 19S regulatory particles (RP, or 19S proteasome) on either one side or both side of the barrel-shaped 20S. The CP and RPs pertain distinct ...
26S proteasome non-ATPase regulatory subunit 1, also as known as 26S Proteasome Regulatory Subunit Rpn2 (systematic nomenclature), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PSMD1 gene. This protein is one of the 19 essential subunits that contributes to the complete assembly of 19S proteasome complex. The gene PSMD1 encodes the largest non-ATPase subunit of the 19S regulator base, which is responsible for substrate recognition and binding. The human PSMD1 gene has 25 exons and locates at chromosome band 2q37.1. The human protein 26S proteasome non-ATPase regulatory subunit 1 is 106 kDa in size and composed of 953 amino acids. The calculated theoretical pI of this protein is 5.25. An alternative splicing during gene expression generates an isoform of the protein in which the amino acid sequence from 797-827 is missing. 26S proteasome complex is usually consisted of a 20S core particle (CP, or 20S proteasome) and one or two 19S regulatory particles (RP, or 19S proteasome) on either one side or ...
Recent studies have implicated the ubiquitin/26S proteasome proteolytic pathway in many environmental and developmental responses in higher plants (Callis and Vierstra, 2000). Here, we extend its importance to cytokinin regulation with the demonstration that an Arabidopsis mutation affecting the synthesis of the RPN12a subunit of the 26S proteasome alters development consistent with a reduction in cytokinin responses. Previous data implicated the ubiquitin/26S proteasome system in the response to hormones, auxins, jasmonate, and abscisic acid (Xie et al., 1998; Gray and Estelle, 2000; Lopez-Molina et al., 2001). Given the complexity of this pathway in plants (in Arabidopsis, it includes more than 1100 genes), it is likely that most if not all hormone responses in plants are regulated at some level by such proteolysis.. In agreement with data from other eukaryotes, RPN12a is a component of the Arabidopsis 26S proteasome. At present, its biochemical function is unknown. RPN12a does not have any ...
The 26S proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered structure composed of 2 complexes, a 20S core and a 19S regulator. The 20S core is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. The 19S regulator is composed of a base, which contains 6 ATPase subunits and 2 non-ATPase subunits, and a lid, which contains up to 10 non-ATPase subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. This gene encodes a non-ATPase subunit of the 19S regulator base that functions as a chaperone protein during 26S proteasome assembly. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012 ...
Rpt6-1 is a thermosensitive yeast mutant with a deletion of a gene encoding a regulatory subunit of the 26S proteasome, RPT6, which is able to grow at 25°C but not at 37°C. In this study, peptidase activities, activation profiles, and the subunit composition of the 20S proteasome purified from the rpt6-1 mutant was characterized. The 20S proteasome purified from rpt6-1 exhibited low levels of peptidase activities in the absence of activators, but nearly same activated activities in the presence of activators, suggesting a gating defect in the proteasome channel. Detailed analyses of the composition of the 20S proteasome through separation of all subunits by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis followed by identification of each subunit using MALDI-TOF-MS revealed that two subunits, α1 and α7, differed from those of wild-type cells in both electrophoretic mobility and pI values. The changes in these two α-subunits were apparent at the permissive temperature, but disappeared during stress response at
The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered ring-shaped 20S core structure. The core structure is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. An essential function of a modified proteasome, the immunoproteasome, is the processing of class I MHC peptides. This gene encodes a member of the proteasome B-type family, also known as the T1B family, that is a 20S core beta subunit. This gene is located in the class II region of the MHC (major histocompatibility complex). Expression of this gene is induced by gamma interferon and this gene product replaces catalytic subunit 1 (proteasome beta 6 subunit) in the immunoproteasome. Proteolytic processing is required to generate a mature subunit. [provided by RefSeq, Mar ...

C.1 Purification and Proteomic Mapping of Murine Liver 19S Proteasome Complexes D. Wang, M.-C. Koag, C. Zong, X. Li, A. Gomes, and P. Ping Department of Physiology and Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA Proteasome complexes play an indispensable role in maintaining cell homeostasis. 19S proteasome complexes, also known as the regulatory particles, are critical components of the 26S proteasome system by governing substrates entry and tuning the catalytic activities of the 20S proteasomes. Multiple studies on proteasome functions reported accumulatively a total of 22 mammalian 19S subunits forming two sub-complexes, the base and the lid. Unfortunately, a comprehensive proteomic blueprint of mammalian 19S complexes remains scarce; which has made it difficult to advance our understanding of the dynamics of proteasome function and substrate specificity. A key limitation is the technology challenges encountered in order to obtain purified 19S proteasome ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - ATP Binding and ATP Hydrolysis Play Distinct Roles in the Function of 26S Proteasome. AU - Liu, Chang Wei. AU - Li, Xiaohua. AU - Thompson, David. AU - Wooding, Kerry.

N2 - The 26S proteasome degrades polyubiquitinated proteins by an energy-dependent mechanism. Here we define multiple roles for ATP in 26S proteasome function. ATP binding is necessary and sufficient for assembly of 26S proteasome from 20S proteasome and PA700/19S subcomplexes and for proteasome activation. Proteasome assembly and activation may require distinct ATP binding events. The 26S proteasome degrades nonubiquitylated, unstructured proteins without ATP hydrolysis, indicating that substrate translocation per se does not require the energy of hydrolysis. Nonubiquitylated folded proteins and certain polyubiquitylated folded proteins were refractory to proteolysis. The ...
Mitochondrial uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2 is implicated in a wide range of pathophysiological processes, including immunity and diabetes mellitus, but its rapid degradation remains uncharacterized. Using pharmacological proteasome inhibitors, immunoprecipitation, dominant negative ubiqbiquitiuitin mutants, cellular fractionation and siRNA techniques, we demonstrate the involvement of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in the rapid degradation of UCP2. Importantly, we resolve the issue of whether intramitochondrial proteins can be degraded by the cytosolic proteasome by reconstituting a cell-free system that shows rapid proteasome-inhibitor-sensitive UCP2 degradation in isolated, energised mitochondria presented with an ATP regenerating system, ubiquitin and 26S proteasome fractions. These observations provide the first demonstration that a mitochondrial inner membrane protein is degraded by the cytosolic ubiquitin-proteasome system. ...
Abstract: The 26S proteasome, which degrades ubiquitinated proteins, appears to contribute to the cyclical loading of androgen receptor (AR) to androgen response elements of target gene promoters; however, the mechanism whereby the 26S proteasome modulates AR recruitment remains unknown. Using yeast two-hybrid screening, we previously identified Tat-binding protein-1 (TBP-1), an adenosine triphosphatase of 19S regulatory particles of the 26S proteasome, as a transcriptional coactivator of thyroid hormone receptor. Independently, TBP-1-interacting protein (TBPIP) was also identified as a coactivator of several nuclear receptors, including AR. Here, we investigated whether TBP-1 could interact with and modulate transcriptional activation by AR cooperatively with TBPIP. TBP-1 mRNA was ubiquitously expressed in human tissues, including the testis and prostate, as well as in LNCaP cells. TBP-1 directly bound TBPIP through the amino-terminal domain possessing the leucine zipper structure. AR is ...
The proteasome is a protein-destroying apparatus involved in many essential cellular functions, such as regulation of cell cycle, cell differentiation, signal transduction pathways, antigen processing for appropriate immune responses, stress signaling, inflammatory responses, and apoptosis. It is capable of degrading a variety of cellular proteins in a rapid and timely fashion and most substrate proteins are modified by ubiquitin before their degradation by the proteasome. The proteasome is a large protein complex consisting of a proteolytic core called the 20S particle and ancillary factors that regulate its activity in various ways. The most common form is the 26S proteasome containing one 20S core particle and two 19S regulatory particles that enable the proteasome to degrade ubiquitinated proteins by an ATP-dependent mechanism. Another form is the immunoproteasome containing two 11S regulatory particles, PA28 alpha and PA28 beta, which are induced by interferon gamma under the conditions of ...

The ubiquitin-proteasome and autophagy-lysosome pathways are the two major routes of protein and organelle clearance. The role of the proteasome pathway in mammalian muscle has not been examined in vivo. In this study, we report that the muscle-specific deletion of a crucial proteasomal gene, Rpt3, resulted in profound muscle growth defects and a decrease in force production in mice. Specifically, developing muscles in conditional Rpt3-knockout animals showed dysregulated proteasomal activity. The autophagy pathway was upregulated, but the process of autophagosome formation was impaired. A microscopic analysis revealed the accumulation of basophilic inclusions and disorganization of the sarcomeres in young adult mice. Our results suggest that appropriate proteasomal activity is important for muscle growth and for maintaining myofiber integrity in collaboration with autophagy pathways. The deletion of a component of the proteasome complex contributed to myofiber degeneration and weakness in ...
Acts as a regulatory subunit of the 26 proteasome which is involved in the ATP-dependent degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. Is not a genuine component of the 26S proteasome, but an auxiliary factor that interacts with the proteasomal ATPase of 19S regulatory particle (RP). Acts as a chaperone which regulates the highly structured assembly of the 19S regulatory particle. Involved in the substrate specificity of the 26S proteasome and is especially involved in the degradation of ubiquitinated GCN4. May contribute to the stability of the 26S proteasome in some stress conditions.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Age-dependent inhibition of proteasome chymotrypsin-like activity in the retina. AU - Kapphahn, Rebecca J.. AU - Bigelow, Erin J.. AU - Ferrington, Deborah A.. PY - 2007/4/1. Y1 - 2007/4/1. N2 - The proteasome plays a fundamental role in processes essential for cell viability. A loss in proteasome function has been associated with aging, as well as a number of age-related diseases. Defining the mechanism(s) behind this loss in function will add important information regarding the molecular basis for aging. In the current study, we performed an age-based comparison of proteasome function and composition of subunits and regulatory proteins in the neural retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in Fischer 344 rats. In the RPE, there was no age-dependent difference in activity, subunit composition, or content of proteasome regulators, PA28 and PA700. In contrast, the aged neural retina demonstrated a significant reduction in the chymotrypsin-like activity and decreased degradation ...
The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex which is characterized by its ability to cleave peptides with Arg, Phe, Tyr, Leu, and Glu adjacent to the leaving group at neutral or slightly basic pH. The proteasome has an ATP-dependent proteolytic activity. Incorporated instead of PSMB5 or PSMB8, this unit reduces the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome. Plays a pivotal role in development of CD8-positive T-cells.
Protein breakdown by the ubiquitin‐proteasome system ensures cell survival and proliferation. The 20S proteasome core particle (CP) constitutes the heart of this non‐lysosomal protein degradation pathway. In mammals, three different CP types are known: the constitutive proteasome (cCP), the immunoproteasome (iCP), and the thymoproteasome (tCP) (Murata et al, 2007; Groettrup et al, 2010). All of them are built of seven different α‐ and seven different β‐subunits that are stacked in four heptameric rings around a central pore. Each type of CP incorporates a distinct set of catalytically active β1, β2 and β5 subunits (cCP: β1c, β2c and β5c; iCP: β1i, β2i and β5i; tCP: β1i, β2i and β5t) (Groll et al, 1997; Unno et al, 2002; Murata et al, 2007; Huber et al, 2012; Harshbarger et al, 2015). These subunits employ the same mechanism of peptide bond hydrolysis (Huber et al, 2012, 2016), but display different substrate specificities. Because of its pivotal biological role, the ...
Plants, like other eukaryotes, rely on proteolysis to control the abundance of key regulatory proteins and enzymes. Strikingly, genome-wide studies have revealed that the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system (UPS) in particular is an exceedingly large and complex route for protein removal, occupying near …

N2 - 26S proteasome, a major regulatory protease in eukaryotes, consists of a 20S proteolytic core particle (CP) capped by a 19S regulatory particle (RP). The 19S RP is divisible into base and lid sub-complexes. Even within the lid, subunits have been demarcated into two modules: module 1 (Rpn5, Rpn6, Rpn8, Rpn9 and Rpn11), which interacts with both CP and base sub-complexes and module 2 (Rpn3, Rpn7, Rpn12 and Rpn15) that is attached mainly to module 1. We now show that suppression of RPN11 expression halted lid assembly yet enabled the base and 20S CP to pre-assemble and form a base-CP. A key role for Regulatory particle non-ATPase 11 (Rpn11) in bridging lid ...
Research in the field of ubiquitin proteasome is expanding exponentially. For instance, intensive research is going on in the field of applications of ubiquitin proteasome system in the treatment of cancer, as the pharmacological inhibition properties of proteasomes can be effective in cancer treatment. Potential sites of therapeutic interventions are also under research and the selective inhibition of disease specific components is also being studied for the purpose of developing treatments for diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders. This indicates a bright future market potential depending upon the time required for commercialization. Currently, there is only one approved ubiquitin proteasome system product available in the market named Velcade. In 2009, total sales of Velcade were estimated to be 1.4 billion and being the only approved drug, its sales are expected to achieve growth at a high compounded annual growth rate ...
Protein turnover is crucial in maintaining cellular homeostasis and this process is largely controlled by the Ubiquitin Proteasome Pathway (UPP). The pathway consists of an enzymatic cascade that links the polypeptide cofactor Ubiquitin to specific protein targets, which mark them for degradation by the proteasome. This cascade is highly regulated and impacts virtually all cellular processes including cell cycle progression, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and apoptosis. Malfunction of the UPP has been implicated in the development of diseases such as cancer, immune disorders and neurodegeneration. ...
The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP) is a major protein degradation pathway that is activated during sepsis and has been proposed as a therapeutic target for preventing skeletal muscle loss due to cachexia. Although several studies have investigated the modulation of proteasome activity in response to LPS administration, none have characterized the overall UPP response to LPS administration in the fate of proteasome inhibition. Here, we determined the modulation pattern of the main key components of the UPP in the gastrocnemius (GAS) of mice during the acute phase of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-mediated endotoxemia (7.5 mg/kg - 8 h) by measuring all three β1, β2 and β5 activites of the 20S and 26S proteasomes, the levels of steady state polyubiquitinated proteins, mRNA levels of muscle ligases, as well as signaling pathways regulating the UPP. Another goal was to assess the effects of administration of a specific proteasome inhibitor (epoxomicin, 0.5 mg/kg) on UPP response to sepsis. The acute phase

CIECHANOVER, Aaron. Intracellular protein degradation: from a vague idea through the lysosome and the ubiquitin-proteasome system and onto human diseases and drug targeting. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.2, pp. 105-119. ISSN 0025-7680.. Between the 1950s and 1980s, scientists were focusing mostly on how the genetic code is transcribed to RNA and translated to proteins, but how proteins are degraded has remained a neglected research area. With the discovery of the lysosome by Christian de Duve it was assumed that cellular proteins are degraded within this organelle. Yet, several independent lines of experimental evidence strongly suggested that intracellular proteolysis is largely non-lysosomal, but the mechanisms involved remained obscure. The discovery of the ubiquitin-proteasome system resolved the enigma. We now recognize that degradation of intracellular proteins is involved in regulation of a broad array of cellular processes, such as cell cycle and division, regulation of ...
Our study shows that liver proteasome activity is reduced by ~30-40% in genetic and dietary models of obesity and diabetes with coordinate upregulation of genes involved in the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. In concert with our findings, recent systematic analyses of liver tissue in obese mice also revealed increased proteasome components (36,37), which may compensate for impaired proteasome function. To test a hypothesis that proteasome dysfunction may be a primary event that links obesity and insulin resistance in the liver, we established a mouse model of impaired proteasome function by deleting PA28 genes. The livers of PA28 KO mice showed impaired proteasome function similar to that observed in mouse models of obesity and type 2 diabetes, accumulation of ubiquitinated proteins and damaged organelles, ER stress, JNK activation, and insulin resistance (Supplementary Fig. 2). A chemical chaperone PBA administration almost completely alleviated proteasome dysfunction-mediated insulin resistance, ...

Proteasome inhibitors, particularly bortezomib, are being explored in the clinical setting in childhood acute leukemias.10 Unfortunately, however, chemoresistance to bortezomib may occur that could hinder its pharmacological activity. In this respect, several in vitro studies with human leukemia cell lines identified mechanisms of acquired bortezomib resistance, most frequently due to upregulation of the proteasomal β5 subunit20,22,32-34 as well as acquisition of β5 subunit mutations that decrease bortezomib binding.20,22,34,35 The current research is the first to address these proteasome-based drug sensitivity and resistance phenomena in a relatively large series of childhood acute leukemia patient specimens and in particular studying the immunoproteasome as a novel drug target. Although the patient samples evaluated in the current study displayed differential bortezomib sensitivity, this observation was not associated with mutations in the β5 subunit of the proteasome20 (data not shown). ...

The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered ring-shaped 20S core structure. The core structure is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. An essential function of a modified proteasome, the immunoproteasome, is the processing of class I MHC peptides. This gene encodes a member of the peptidase T1A family, that is a 20S core alpha subunit. Two alternative transcripts encoding different isoforms have been identified.

The present study demonstrates that ritonavir, by inhibiting the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome, has cytostatic and cytotoxic effects on glioma cells that can however induce resistances in vitro and are unable to control tumor proliferation in vivo.. The idea that ubiquitin/proteasome pathway is an attractive target for novel anticancer therapies is actively explored (24, 46). Indeed tumor cells, including glioma cells, not only progress through up-regulation of oncogenes, but also through increase of proteolytic degradation of tumor suppressors and cell cycle inhibitors, which mostly requires the ubiquitin/proteasome system (20, 22, 47). The constitutively high proteasome basal activity and the presence of many ubiquitinylated proteins, as observed here in GL15 cells, suggests that protein degradation occurs through increase of both protein targeting and endopeptidase activity.. A commonly used proteasome inhibitor, lactacystin, inhibits the proteasome by binding covalently to the ...
05 Jan 2017. The use of proteasome inhibitors to treat cancer has been greatly limited by the ability of cancer cells to develop resistance to these drugs.. But Whitehead Institute researchers have found a mechanism underlying this resistance-a mechanism that naturally occurs in many diverse cancer types and that may expose vulnerabilities to drugs that spur the natural cell-death process.. This finding-which also identifies a biomarker that can be used to gain a deeper understanding of the proteasome inhibitor-resistant state- is reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in an article entitled, Suppression of 19S proteasome subunits marks emergence of an altered cell state in diverse cancers.. Proteasomes are large protein complexes that mediate protein degradation and play a crucial role in maintaining protein equilibrium within the cell.. When cells become cancerous, tremendous stresses are placed on the cellular machinery responsible for maintaining protein ...
Fluorogenic Proteasome Substrate (Z-VKM-AMC) is used to measure the peptidase activity of the 20S proteasome.Also used as a fluorogenic substrate for Alzheimers Disease
Nogales, an expert on electron microscopy and image analysis, and Martin, who developed the new protein expression system used in this work, combined the expertise of their respective research groups to study the proteasome regulatory particle in yeast. The particle features 19 sub-units that are organized into two sub-complexes, a "lid" and a "base." The lid contains the regulatory elements that identify the ubiquitin tag marking a protein for destruction, and the base features a hexameric ring that pulls the tagged protein inside the chamber of the proteasome barrel where it is degraded.. "The lid consists of nine non-ATPase proteins including ubiquitin receptors that accept properly tagged proteins but prevent a protein not marked for degradation from engaging with the proteasome," Nogales says. "Since degradation is irreversible, it is critical that only ubiquitin-tagged proteins engage the proteasome. Interestingly, the ubiquitin tag has to be removed before the protein can be translocated ...
In the wake of bortezomib and its analogs, a second generation of drugs targeting the proteasome is emerging. These drugs include salinosporamide A (NPI-0052) [27, 28] (Figure 2b), a secondary metabolite derived from a novel obligate marine actinomycete (Salinispora tropicana), and its analogs [29]. NPI-0052 is a highly potent and selective 20S proteasome inhibitor with irreversible activity against all three catalytic sites. In preclinical studies, NPI-0052 has been shown to outperform bortezomib, as it was active against myeloma cells resistant to bortezomib, steroids and thalidomide, and was less toxic to normal cells. Studies using human multiple myeloma xenografts showed that NPI-0052 is well tolerated, prolongs survival and reduces tumor recurrence, thus supporting its use to treat multiple myeloma [30]. A phase I trial was recently initiated in the US, in patients with solid tumors and lymphomas. Open analogs of salinosporamide A, such as 2-pyrrolidone derivatives from microorganisms ...
We have previously proposed (Zhang and Coffino, 2004), and here test, the following simple model: Two elements of the 19S regulatory particle are postulated to function coordinately. The first is a site impelling translocation, the ATPase ring, which binds the substrate and advances it stepwise toward the 20S core particle. The second is a site of constriction within the regulatory particle, possibly the entrance to a translocation channel through the ATPase ring. This postulated constriction impairs transit of a folded domain. The ATPase ring produces energy that performs work on the substrate, some of which is used to unravel the folded domain. The mode of energy transmission may be as simple as a lever arm motion that applies a friction drive to the polypeptide chain (Hinnerwisch et al, 2005). In the normal case, energy supply continuously exceeds need, and the substrate polypeptide continuously advances. If this balance transiently swings in the other direction, with energy need exceeding ...

Methods: This study investigated the relationships among DPA, circulating proteasome activity, and protein carbonyl in COPD patients and healthy subjects (HSs). This study included 57 participants (42 patients and 15 healthy subjects). Ambulatory DPA was measured using actigraphy, and oxygen saturation was measured with a pulse oximeter. Results: COPD patients had ...
Inhibition of proteasome degradation pathway has been implicated in neuronal cell death leading to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinsons disease and Alzheimers disease. We and others demonstrated that treatment of cortical neurons with the proteasomal inhibitor lactacystin leads to apoptosis. We discovered by microarray analysis that lactacystin treatment modulates the expression of both potentially neuroprotective as well as pro-apoptotic genes in neurons. However, the significance of the genes which upon transcriptional modulation contributed to proteasomal inhibition-induced apoptosis, remained unidentified. By employing microarray analysis to decipher the time-dependent changes in transcription of these genes in cultured cortical neurons, we discovered different groups of genes were transcriptionally regulated in the early and late phase of lactacystin-induced cell death. In the early phase, several neuroprotective genes such as those encoding the proteasome subunits and ...

In this article we describe the Proteasome-Glo 3-Substrate System, which consists of three homogeneous, bioluminescent assays that measure the three proteolytic activities associated with the proteasome.
The ubiquitin-proteasome system degrades most intracellular proteins, including misfolded proteins. Proteasome functional insufficiency (PFI) was observed in experimental proteinopathies and implicated in many human common diseases but its pathogenic role has not been established because a measure to enhance proteasome function in the cell has not been reported until very recently. We have recently discovered that overexpression of proteasome activator 28α (PA28α) enhances proteasome-mediated removal of abnormal proteins in the cell and protects against oxidative stress in cultured cardiomyocytes (FASEB J 2011; 25(3):883-93). Here we have extended the in vitro discoveries to intact animals. First, we created inducible transgenic mice with cardiomyocyte-restricted PA28α overexpression (CR-PA28αOE). CR-PA28αOE does not alter the homeostasis of normal proteins and cardiac function but increases the degradation of a surrogate misfolded protein in the heart. This marks the establishment of the ...
Cells have multiple protein complexes to keep the genome intact and functional. Based on the current studies, the relationship among the components of the complexes may well differ between cells with and without the Blm10-20S proteasome activator. Loss of the activator downregulated numerous genes crucial for maintaining genomic stability, heightened DNA damage, and selectively sensitized cells to agents with different mechanisms of action. Although the exact or direct cause of the elevated DNA damage in Blm10 cells was not investigated for the current studies, the simultaneous downregulated expression appears important and suggests ways that Blm10 loss predisposes cells to lethal effects of agents with diverse mechanisms of action. We propose that modulated chromatin structure could compromise DNA integrity in blm10Δ/blm10Δ mutant cells, and conclude that the hypersusceptibilities establish Blm10 as a guardian against cellular stresses.. Even without external stimuli, cells were stressed ...
