    Abstract : The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP) plays a fundamental role in many basic cellular processes. Virtually all events in cellular physiology include control by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Ubiquitinated substrates are degraded by the 26S proteasome, a large multicatalytic protease complex.

    Abstract : Vascular disease is the main cause of disability and mortality in the western world and the major limiting factor for long- term survival of transplanted organs. Occlusive vascular lesions lead to ischemia and structural changes in organs and in transplant arteriosclerosis and restenosis after endovascular procedures, narrowing of the vessel lumen is partly due to intimal hyperplasia caused by smooth muscle cells (SMCs).
