Description

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.
From the contents:
* Ubiquitin and cancer
* Ubiquitin and liver cancer
* Muscle atrophy
* Aggresomes and human disease
* Parkin and neurodegeneration
* Chronic neurodegenerative diseases
* Parkinson's disease
* Ubiquitin and viruses
* Druggability of the ubiquitin-proteasome system
