Protein Degradation by R. John Mayer

Book Description

This series of four topical volumes includes more than 50 contributions covering all aspects of the molecular biology and physiology of controlled protein breakdown in higher organisms via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. The editors and authors comprise virtually all the top scientists in the field, including the pioneers of protein degradation research and the 2004 Nobel laureate in chemistry. Each volume highlights a different aspect of the field, namely ubiquitin and the chemistry of life, as well as the cell biology and pathology of the ubiquitin-proteasome system, with the individual volumes featuring their own separate indices. Together, all four volumes provide the most comprehensive reference on protein degradation available.

Ubiquitin-Proteasome System and Disease by R. John Mayer Ubiquitin-Proteasome System and Disease, Hardback (October 2007)

This final volume in the series focuses on malfunctions of the ubiquitin-proteasome system and their role in human disease. The editors and authors represent unmatched expertise, comprising virtually all the top scientists in the field, including the pioneers of protein degradation research.

Cell Biology of the Ubiquitin-Proteasome System by R. John Mayer Cell Biology of the Ubiquitin-Proteasome System, Hardback (October 2006)

The third of four volumes discusses the role of ubiquitin-mediated protein breakdown in cellular regulation and physiology. Required reading for molecular biologists, cell biologists and physiologists with an interest in the topic.

Ubiquitin-proteasome System by R. John Mayer Ubiquitin-proteasome System, Hardback (February 2006)

Part of a series dedicated to protein degradation, this book discusses the mechanism and cellular functions of targeted protein breakdown via the ubiquitin pathway.

Ubiquitin and the Chemistry of Life by R. John Mayer Ubiquitin and the Chemistry of Life, Hardback (March 2005)

The first volume in a series dedicated to protein degradation, this book lays the foundations of targeted protein breakdown via the ubiquitin pathway. The outstanding importance of the ubiquitin pathway has been recognized with the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for Aaaron Chiechanover, Avram Hershko, and Irwin Rose.

Author Biography - R. John Mayer

John Mayer obtained his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Birmingham (UK). He is currently serving as Professor of Biochemistry at the School of Biomedical Sciences at Nottingham University. For the past 30 years, he has investigated intracellular proteolysis and particularly the ubiquitin/proteasome system. Presently, he is particularly interested in intracellular proteolysis in relation to neurodegenerative illnesses. Aaron Ciechanover obtained his MD from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (Israel), and his PhD from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, where he is presently serving as Professor of Biochemistry. Professor Ciechanover is known for his discovery of the first ubiquitin system mutant cell, demonstrating the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic system in protein degradation in vivo. In 2004, he has received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his ground-breaking work on the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Martin Rechsteiner is Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (USA). He is interested in the proteasome component of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. He has identified several key regulators of proteasome function and is currently working on their structural and functional elucidation.
