Contents The secretory capacity of a cell depends on the efficiency of endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation / M. Molinari and R. Sitia -- Recognition and delivery of ERAD substrates to the proteasome and alternative paths for cell survival / A.A. McCracken and J.L. Brodsky -- CPY* and the power of yeast genetics in the elucidation of quality control and associated protein degradation of the endoplasmic reticulum / D.H. Wolf and A. Schäfer -- The role of the ubiquination machinery in dislocation and degradation of endoplasmic reticulum proteins / M. Kikkert, G. Hassink, and E. Wiertz -- The role of p97/Cdc48p in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation : from the immune system to yeast / S. Bar-Nun -- The ins and outs of intracellular peptides and antigen presentation by MHC Class I molecules / T. Groothuis and J. Neefjes -- Entry of protein toxins into mammalian cells by crossing the endoplasmic reticulum membrane : co-opting basic mechanisms of endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation / J.M. Lord, L.M. Roberts, and W.I. Lencer
Summary Contains seven chapters that describe various aspects of a protein's genesis and terminal fate in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This area is of medical relevance since the malfunctioning of proper quality control during protein synthesis, and the lack of sufficient degradation of improper proteins from the ER forms the basis of human diseases
