The proteasome is an ATP-dependent, 2.5-megadalton machine responsible for selective protein degradation in eukaryotic cells. In this talk, I will summarize our recent studies with cryo-EM on the structures and dynamics of both substrate-free and substrate-engaged human proteasome in a dozen of conformational states at near-atomic resolution. We will discuss how these structures visualize a continuum of dynamic substrate-proteasome interactions from ubiquitin recognition to substrate translocation, during which ATP hydrolysis sequentially navigates through all six ATPases. Most importantly, three principal modes of coordinated hydrolysis are observed, featuring hydrolytic events in two oppositely positioned ATPases, in two adjacent ATPases, and in one ATPase at a time. These hydrolytic modes regulate deubiquitylation, translocation initiation and processive unfolding of substrates, respectively. ATP hydrolysis powers a hinge-like motion in each ATPase that regulates its substrate interaction. Synchronization of ATP binding, ADP release and ATP hydrolysis in three adjacent ATPases drives rigid-body rotations of substrate-bound ATPases that are propagated unidirectionally in the ATPase ring and unfold the substrate. Taken together, these studies reveal how proteasome dynamics elegantly regulate its function as well as the design principle of the proteasome machinery.
