Proteasomes from eukaryotes and archaea, showing the cap complex (magenta), core complex (blue, where alpha and beta subunits are shown), slice surface (green), active sites (white circles) and N-termini (circled ‘N’s). In (c) and (f), cyan indicates the residues visualized that are closest to the N-termini (threonine 13 and serine 11 respectively). (a) Electron micrograph of proteasome holoenzyme from a representative eukaryote (Xenopus laevis). (b) Medial cut-away view of the Thermoplasma acidophilum proteasome core. The lumen is divided into three chambers, and the central chamber contains the peptidase active sites (red). (c) Ribbon diagram of two Thermoplasma acidophiluma subunits, showing the structure of the pore. (d) Cut-away view of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae proteasome core. (e) Ribbon diagram of two S. cerevisiaea subunits (left: Pre9/Y13; right: Pre10/Prs1). The N-termini of these subunits are shown to occlude the channel.

Figure 1 Comparison of different classes of ATP-dependent pro- teases, shown as a side-on cross-section. (A) The eukaryotic 26S proteasome, composed of a 20S core particle (blue a and b subunits) flanked by 19S regulatory subunits (magenta and orange). The 19S subunits bind to the substrate through the covalent ubiquitin modification (yellow) and unfold it by pulling on the unstructured initiation site (bright green). Ubiquitin is removed to be recycled during the degradation process. (B) The bacterial protease ClpXP, composed of rings of the protease ClpP (dark green) and the ATPase motor ClpX (red). ClpX binds to the degradation signal, in this case the ssrA peptide sequence (green), which also serves as the site for the initiation of degradation. (C) The actinobacterial proteasome, consisting of a 20S core particle similar to that of the 26S proteasome, and a single ring of the ATPase Mpa (purple). Mpa binds to the substrate through the covalent Pup modification (light green). Pup has an N-terminal unstructured region, which serves as the site for the initiation of degradation, leading to complete degradation of Pup. (D) Archaeal proteasome is most closely related to the eukaryotic proteasome, with core alpha and beta subunits and Rpt-like AAA ATPase subunits (termed PAN for Proteasome Activating Nucleotidase) involved in protein unfolding.

ClpAP, ClpXP are ‘active’ proteases
ClpP by itself not active as protease
- ClpP (2 rings) has
- ClpA, ClpX attach
As single rings on
