Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

... Taken together, these results suggestedthat Nedd4 works as an antagonist of Notch signaling at an early stage,prior to the proteolytic cleavage of the receptor’s intracellulardomain. Further investigation revealed the specific domain by whichNedd4 interacts with Notch and pinpointed the site of origin for...
