Regulation of Protein Turnover

  • Peter J. Reeds


The dynamic nature of cellular proteins was demonstrated over 40 years ago (Schoenheimer et al., 1939). But it was not until 1967–1972 that the measurement of protein turnover in vivo received systematic attention, notably by Wa-terlow’s group (Waterlow and Stephen, 1967; Picou and Taylor-Roberts, 1969; Garlick, 1969; Garlick and Marshall, 1972). It is now generally accepted that cellular proteins are always subject to continual degradation even when protein is neither gained nor lost from the body.
