Pro(moting) the Turnover of Gluconeogenic Enzymes by a New Branch of the N-end Rule Pathway Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The N-end rule pathway is a set of protein degradation systems that link the in vivo stability of a protein to its N-terminal residue. A recent paper from Alexander Varshavsky's laboratory [1] identifies a new branch of the N-end rule pathway that specifically recognizes the N-terminal Pro residue of key gluconeogenesis enzymes.
