For me when I was cutting from 235-170 currently, there were days where I would have under 50-80g of protein sometimes (many nights of drinking).
On average, I would have around 100-120g, and I was making gains with all lifts while steadily losing bodyfat.
I think your genetics mainly has a role on how it utilizes the protein you eat. For example maybe 50g of protein that I take will be utilized towards muscle repair/buildling MORE-SO than a ectomorph consuming 50g. Maybe some broscience there, but in my experience my body get's good gains with way less than 1 pound of protein/bodyweight.
So in other words, you will have to do some trial and error, see if you make gains with a certain amount of protein that you consume each day. Try and stick with that number consistently and dont fret if you get below it, or way below it some days. As long as you're consistent.
