Sorry, no etymologies found.
Of particular importance is the realization that either: the "tool kit" for development includes the COP9 signalosome and other ubiquitin/SUMO-related systems; or 2. many members of the "tool kit" are the direct targets of the COP9 signalosome.
Furthermore, the concept of a signalosome involving disease-associated factors, such as DISC1 and glutamate, may well contribute to the multifactorial and polygenetic characteristics of schizophrenia.

With special emphasis we characterize the biochemical functions of the multiprotein complex COP9 signalosome and its importance in the regulation of NF-kappaB.
Kovalenko A, Cantarella G, Wallach D (2000) Recruitment of the IKK signalosome to the p55 TNF receptor: RIP and A20 bind to NEMO (IKKgamma) upon receptor stimulation.
Another possibility is that HBD plays a role in creating the tolerizing phenotype, but only as a part of TSP-1, when a signalosome is formed
