Effects of Alcohol Consumption on the Ubiquitin-Proteasome System.
Excessive alcohol consumption can impair proteolysis mediated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system through several mechanisms.
Thus, in contrast to the lysosomal and ubiquitin-proteasome systems, which are inhibited by chronic alcohol consumption, the activity of the calpain system is enhanced by chronic alcohol consumption.
