Abstract/OtherAbstract:
When it was discovered in the 1970s as a ubiquitous protein, ubiquitin, a 76-aminoacid peptide, had no assigned function. It was not until later that ubiquitin was found to be a necessary cofactor in a vital cellular process: the degradation of proteins. Work by Avram Hershko, Aaron Ciechanover, and Irwin Rose (for which they received the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry) showed that the covalent attachment of ubiquitin provide proteins with a tag that dispatches them to the proteasome, the main cell degradation machinery.
