Misfolded proteins in the ER require the p97 AAA ATPase for dislocation across the membrane prior to degradation by the cytosolic proteasome. The mechanism by which dislocated proteins are delivered to the proteasome from p97 is unclear, but recent studies suggest an important regulatory role for the protein ataxin-3.
