Zusammenfassung
It is shown that proteasomes from the arachaebacterium Thermoplasma acidophilum selectively degrade substrate proteins partially unfolded by phenylhydrazine- or hydrogen peroxide-treatment. Surprisingly, the pre-incubation of the substrate proteins with ubiquitin is also sufficient to render them susceptible to proteolytic degradation by proteasomes. We propose that, upon spontaneously associating with the substrate protein, ubiquitin exerts a chaotropic effect on it; this may involve the exposure of hydrophobic segments of the polypeptide chain which are recognized by the binding sites of the proteasome.
