What are the similarities between proteasome and protease?

Posted September 7, 2023


One similarity the two share is that they are both classified as biomolecules. They also both have catalytic and enzymatic capabilities. Additionally, both are involved in the proteolysis degradation pathway of proteins. Both catalyze ATP dependent energy reactions. Another similarity is that proteasomes and proteases are found in almost all organisms (animals, bacteria, archaea, plants).
