Matrine modulates HSC70 levels and rescues ΔF508-CFTR.
Salerno, Italy. In J Cell Physiol, 2012
downregulation of HSC70 resulted in increased levels of DeltaF508-CFTR complexes with the co-chaperone BAG3 that in addition appeared to co-localize with the mutated protein on the cell surface.
Molecular mechanism and physiological functions of clathrin-mediated endocytosis.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol, 2011
The process involves the formation of a putative FCH domain only (FCHO) initiation complex, which matures through adaptor protein 2 (AP2)-dependent cargo selection, and subsequent coat building, dynamin-mediated scission and finally auxilin- and heat shock cognate 70 (HSC70)-dependent uncoating.
Harnessing chaperone-mediated autophagy for the selective degradation of mutant huntingtin protein.
Wako, Japan. In Nat Biotechnol, 2010
As the polyglutamine binding peptide 1 (QBP1) is known to bind an expanded polyQ tract but not the polyQ motif found in normal HTT, we selectively targeted mutant HTT for degradation by expressing a fusion molecule comprising two copies of QBP1 and copies of two different heat shock cognate protein 70 (HSC70)-binding motifs in cellular and mouse models of HD.
