Muscle proteolysis is regulated by the ATP-dependent ubiquitin–proteasome system. This system involves ubiquitination of specific proteins, leading to recognition and degradation by the 26S proteasome complex. Ubiquitination requires interactions with ubiquitin related proteins, ubiquitin-activating (E1), ubiquitin-conjugating (E2) and ubiquitin-ligating enzymes (E3) known as ligases. Two muscle specific ubiquitin ligases have been identified, muscle ring finger 1 (MuRF-1) and Atrogin 1. Both ligases are regulated by the Akt1/FOXO1 signaling pathway, and both proteins have been shown to be upregulated prior to the onset of atrophy in multiple models of muscle wasting, including disuse and cachexia.
Human recombinant Atrogin 1 is a 54 kDa protein that includes the full length sequence along with N-terminal His tag and Sumo fusion tag. This Atrogin 1 fusion protein is detected by rabbit polyclonal anti-Atrogin 1 and rat monoclonal anti-Atrogin 1.
