Proteolysis occurs within the cylindrical 20S proteasome that is constitutively expressed in most tissues. However, three tissue-specific versions of the 20S proteasome have been discovered to date. The immunoproteasome is optimized to process antigens and it directs the differentiation of T helper (Th) cells. The thymoproteasome is selectively expressed in cortical epithelial cells of the thymus where it plays an essential role in the positive selection of T lymphocytes. Finally, the spermatoproteasome is found in the testes where it is required during spermatogenesis. Here, we outline how tissue-specific proteasomes adapt to functional needs in their respective tissues and how their selective inhibition may be used to interfere with autoimmune diseases and cancer.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2014-07-09T15:14:08Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Kniepert, Andrea</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gröttrup, Marcus</dc:creator> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Trends in biochemical sciences ; 39 (2014), 1. - S. 17-24</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2014-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>The unique functions of tissue-specific proteasomes</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Gröttrup, Marcus</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kniepert, Andrea</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-07-09T15:14:08Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
