Abstract:

S-adenosylmethionine is a metabolite regulating many biological processes; S-adenosylmethionine effect on ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) has not been studied yet. We investigated S-adenosylmethionine effects on UPS activity both in vitro, by inhibitor screening assay, and in rat vascular smooth muscle cells, by Western Blot of proteasomal targets. We found that S-adenosylmethionine inhibited UPS activity.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
