Ubiquitination is a post-translational protein modification process that plays a key role in regulating the fate and activity of proteins in the cell. Through a series of steps, ubiquitin molecules are attached to specific protein targets in order to label them for degradation, modify their interactions with other molecules, or direct them to different cellular locations. Ubiquitination is an essential mechanism for many cellular processes, such as gene expression, cell cycle regulation, and immune response. It is also involved in the development of diseases such as cancer and neurological disorders. Understanding this process is essential for developing new treatments for these diseases.
