Zomes IX: PCI complexes and Ubiquitin defining a hub for protein homeostasis

The ZOMES meetings focus on the biology of the three “PCI” complexes, the proteasome, the COP9 signalosome, and eIF3 and on ubiquitin ligases. The study of large protein complexes -“ZOMES” – poses unique issues and difficulties, and the ZOMES meetings aim at providing a forum for discussing the connections between these complexes and central signaling […]
