I am interested in the function and mechanism of the ubiquitin/proteasome system. Specific questions addressed are how ubiquitylated substrates are transferred to the proteasome and how ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis deals with various proteins key to cell growth and development. We have also been dissecting the involvement of the ubiquitin system in cancers and neurodegenerative diseases.
