Proteasome Book from C.H.I.P.S.

The Proteasome in Neurodegeneration
by Leonidas Stefanis

The Proteasome in Neurodegeneration provides an in depth analysis and provocative discussion of what role normal and aberrant proteasome function plays in regulating various aspects of brain homeostasis.

The Proteasome in Neurodegeneration contains up-to-date reviews on different aspects of hte ubliquitin proteasome system and its involvement in several neurodegenerative diseases.

The Proteasome in Neurodegeneration provides information on the basics of the ubliquitin proteasome system, but mainly describes a number of aspects of involvement of this system in neurodegeneration.
