Heat shock transcription factor 2 binding protein
HSF2 binding protein (HSF2BP) associates with HSF2. The interaction occurs between the trimerization domain of HSF2 and the amino terminal hydrophilic region of HSF2BP that comprises two leucine zipper motifs. HSF2BP may therefore be involved in modulating HSF2 activation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Of these, three were constitutively SUMOylated (FOS, CRSP9 and CDC37) while the remaining five substrates (CSNK2B, TAF10, HSF2BP, PSMC3 and DRG1) showed a stimulation-dependent SUMOylation induced by the MAP3 kinase MEKK1.
We screened a human testis cDNA library for proteins that can associate with HSF2 by the yeast two-hybrid system, and isolated clones encoding a novel protein, designated HSF2 binding protein (HSF2BP), that associates with HSF2 in vitro and in vivo and is specifically expressed in testis.
