The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered ring-shaped 20S core structure. The core structure is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. The encoded protein is a member of the proteasome B-type family, also known as the T1B family, and is a 20S core beta subunit in the proteasome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
GeneCards Summary for PSMB6 Gene
PSMB6 (Proteasome Subunit Beta 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PSMB6 include Hiv-1. Among its related pathways are Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include endopeptidase activity and threonine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PSMB9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PSMB6 Gene
The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex which is characterized by its ability to cleave peptides with Arg, Phe, Tyr, Leu, and Glu adjacent to the leaving group at neutral or slightly basic pH. The proteasome has an ATP-dependent proteolytic activity. This unit is responsible of the peptidyl glutamyl-like activity. May catalyze basal processing of intracellular antigens.
