Role of ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in cell cycle regulation in yeast

Study period:1993 - 1995

Research overview:
A specific gene product plays a role in driving cell cycle, where the gene product (protein) should be degraded in order for the other gene product to take over the position for a new role in following stage. Degradation of the protein in this case is known to be triggered by ubiquitination of the target protein selectively by a particular molecular species of the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in the ubiquitin system. With the advantageous use of refined genetic system of yeast, molecular mechanism that enables specific protein(s) to be ubiquitinated should be clarified.
