Melatonin, bone regulation and the ubiquitin-proteasome connection: A review.
Winnipeg, Canada. In Life Sci, Jan 2016
The ubiquitin ligases that are reported to be of major significance in regulating these pathways are the ubiquitin SCF(B-TrCP) ligase (which regulates activation of NF-κB via degradation of IkBα in osteoclasts, and regulates bone transcription factors via degradation of β-catenin), the Keap-Cul3-Rbx1 ligase (which regulates degradation of IkB kinase, Nrf2, and the antiapoptotic factor Bcl-2), and Smurf1.
Proteasome inhibitors in progressive renal diseases.
Torino, Italy. In Nephrol Dial Transplant, 2014
PS proteolysis is crucial for the degradation of the inhibitory protein IkB of nuclear factor kB (NF-kB), and hence, an interesting field of research has been developed on possible benefits of drugs with anti-PS activity in disease conditions with hyper-expression of NF-kB.
