26S proteasome inhibitor - Autophagy activator

26S proteasome inhibitor

MG-132 is a peptide aldehyde (Z-Leu-Leu-Leu-al) that selectively blocks the proteolytic activity of the 26S proteasome.

This potent inhibitor is used as a tool for disrupting the proteasome-regulated degradation of intracellular proteins, such as IκB. Inhibition of IκB proteasomal degradation by MG-132 leads to the suppression of NF-κB activation [1].

Recent studies suggest that inhibition of the proteasome by MG-132 can induce autophagy by stabilizing Atg protein levels.
