- ‘In the context of the cell, the unfolding process participates in several important steps in cellular physiology, such as protein turnover in proteasomes.’
- ‘This suggests that independent protein degradation pathways for ubiquitin, as well as for the proteasome complex, may exist in strawberry fruit.’
