Abstract

Rapid degradation of specific regulatory proteins plays a role in a wide range of cellular phenomena, including cell cycle progression and the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. A major mechanism of selective protein turnover in vivo involves a large multi-subunit protease known as the proteasome or multi-catalytic proteinase. At the same time, the degradation of many cellular proteins requires their covalent ligation to the polypeptide ubiquitin. Here we show that the yeast S. cerevisiae MAT alpha 2 repressor, which is known to be ubiquitinylated in vivo, requires the proteasome for its rapid intracellular proteolysis.
