An in-depth review of molecular and cellular pathways
The maintenance of proteostasis, the biological mechanisms that control the fate of a protein from synthesis to degradation, is ensured by complex and interconnected pathways controlling protein abundance, turnover, folding, functions, subcellular localization, and ultimate degradation. Impaired proteostasis can lead to the accumulation of damaged or aggregated proteins, or conversely, to excessive protein degradation. Proteostasis is thus involved in pathologies such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders.
