Structure and recognition of polyubiquitin chains of different lengths and linkage


Journal Title:

F1000 Biology Reports


Volume 3, Number 26


, Pages 1-10

Type of Work:

Article | Final Publisher PDF


The polyubiquitin signal is post-translationally attached to a large number of proteins, often directing formation of macromolecular complexes resulting in the translocation, assembly or degradation of the attached protein. Recent structural and functional studies reveal general mechanisms by which different architectures and length of the signal are distinguished.
