Ubiquitination is a posttranslational modification of proteins by ubiquitin ligases that typically targets a protein for degradation. This modification can be reversed, however, by proteins called deubiquitinating enzymes. The localization, function, and stability of target proteins can be regulated by the coordinated actions of ubiquitin ligases and deubiquitinating enzymes. My research uses C. elegans as a genetic model to study the regulation of an AMPA-like receptor, GLR-1, at the synapse by deubiquitinating enzymes and related proteins.
