Experimenting in both human and mouse cell cultures, Min Jae Lee, also a postdoctoral researcher, and his co-workers found that IU1 inhibited Usp14 and allowed the proteasome to dispose of proteins more quickly.
Though scientists are still investigating just how IU1 works, it appears that the molecule suppresses Usp14's ability to trim the ubiquitin chain.
In addition to discovering IU1, this research has also shed light on an aspect of proteasome function that was not previously understood, King says.
