Comments Primary source abstract: "Clastosomes contain ubiquitin conjugates, the proteolytically active 20S core and 19S regulatory complexes of the 26S proteasome, and protein substrates of the proteasome. Although detected in a variety of cell types, clastosomes are scarce under normal conditions however, they become more abundant when proteasomal activity is stimulated."
