The ubiquitin-proteasome system was discovered as a central player for rapid and selective proteolysis of key regulatory proteins controlling a variety of cellular processes in all eukaryotes. Currently my main interests address two major domains in which ubiquitylation seem to play essential functions: (1) how stress hormones impinge on the cell cycle machinery and (2) protein turnover and its significance in RNA silencing.
