Protein degradation has recently emerged as a selective and potentially effective approach to identify new drug targets, by reducing specific cellular proteins—using targeted protein degradation. Understanding the mechanism by which proteins are degraded and identifying the tools available to target individual proteins will allow for the development and advancement of treatments for various diseases and disorders.

The Protein Degradation Resource Center includes the latest information and research tools to assist you in evaluating protein degradation by providing product offerings and solutions to your everyday protein degradation questions.

Complex formation

Complex formation

Does my probe target my protein of interest and E3 ligase to properly form a ternary complex?

A chimera or small molecule probe must have available binding sites for both the E3 ligase and protein of interest. Determine if the ternary complex is formed and initiated targeted protein degradation of the protein of interest.

Polyubiquitination

Is our protein of interest being polyubiquitinated?


Polyubiquitination tags the protein of interest for degradation by the proteasome. Determine the state of ubiquitin modification of the protein of interest in cell or tissue lysates and confirm the protein has been tagged for degradation.
