The corresponding scaling behavior is governed by an universal critical exponent.A new force replica exchange (RE) method was developed for efficient configuration sampling of biomolecules pulled by an external mechanical force.

This peak can not be encountered by the Go models in which the non-native interactions are neglected.
Our finding may stimulate further experimental and theoretical studies on this protein.
It was shown that refolding pathways of single Ubiquitin depend on what end is anchored to the surface.
Namely, the fixation of the N-terminal changes refolding pathways but anchoring the C-terminal leaves them unchanged.
Finally, cell-permeable Protacs can also promote the degradation of proteins in cells. s natural proteolytic machinery is a potential avenue for the treatment of human disease.
Biologically, this work signifies the amazing versatility and flexibility of the ubiquitin-proteasome system. The effects of HSP inhibition were greatest for mutant P17A/P19A- and V18M-Ch AT. Lastly, inhibition of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)- and HSP-associated co-chaperone Cdc48/p97/Valosin-containing protein (VCP) prevented the degradation of ubiquitinated Ch AT.Together my results identify novel mechanisms for the functional regulation of wild-type and CMS-related mutant Ch AT by multiple molecular chaperones and the ubiquitin-proteasome system that, importantly, may have broader implications for Ch AT function during cellular stress and disease.We predict that, contrary to the AFM experiments, an additional unfolding peak would occur at the end-to-end $\Delta R \approx 1.5 $nm in the force-extension curve.Our study reveals the important role of non-native interactions which are responsible for a peak located at $\Delta R \approx 22 $nm.The first demonstration of the efficacy of Protac technology was the successful recruitment, ubiquitination, and degradation of the protein Methionine Aminopeptidase-2 (Met AP-2) through a covalent interaction between Met AP-2 and Protac.Subsequently, we demonstrated that Protacs could effectively ubiquitinate and degrade cancer-promoting proteins (estrogen and androgen receptors) through non-covalent interactions in vitro and in cells.Interestingly, the end fixation has no effect on multi-domain Ubiquitin.Using the Go modeling and all-atom models with explicit water, we have studied the mechanical unfolding mechanism of DDFLN4 in detail.Contrary to the standard temperature RE, the exchange is carried out between different forces (replicas).Our method was successfully applied to study thermodynamics of a three-domain Ubiquitin.
