Degradation of cellular unwanted proteins is carried out in _________

A. Proteasomes

B. Lysosome

C. Peroxisomes

D. Ribosomes

The question was asked by my college professor while I was bunking the class.

Question is from Gene Expression Control in division Control of Gene Expression of Cell Biology

Right choice is A. Proteasomes

For explanation I would say: Cellular proteins are degraded in the proteasomes.They are made up of 2 different protein complexes(two α subunit and two β subunit). Lysosomes however degrade extracellular proteins and other macromolecules.
