Scientific Background:In catabolic conditions where proteolysis is increased, two specific genes for skeletal muscle atrophy, MuRf1 (muscle ring finger-1) and MAFbx (muscle atrophy F-box) (or atrogin- 1), which encode ubiquitin (Ub) ligases, are up-regulated. These ligases bind to and mediate ubiquitination of myofibrillar proteins for subsequent degradation during muscle atrophy and are considered as sensitive markers of muscle protein degradation by the Ub-proteasome system. Recombinant GST-MuRF1 is competent for both auto-ubiquitinylation and ubiquitinylation of substrate proteins, such as troponin I, in vitro.
