A giant, snake-like enzyme seals the fate of unwanted proteins

A new study by scientists at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology and Boehringer Ingelheim reveals the structure of a massive, snake-like enzyme called HUWE1, and how it marks a multitude of undesirable proteins for degradation. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Chemical Biology, further our understanding of this enzyme and its therapeutic potential.
