Prefoldin is a molecular chaperone found in the archaeal and eukaryotic cytosol. Prefoldin can stabilize tentatively nascent polypeptide chains or non-native forms of mainly cytoskeletal proteins, which are subsequently delivered to group II chaperonin to accomplish their precise folding. However, the detailed mechanism is not well known, especially with(More)
The distribution of rat bile-canalicular surface antigen (HAM-4 antigen) and cytoskeletal elements (microtubules, actin filaments, and cytokeratin filaments) was examined during the reformation of bile-canalicular structures (BC-structures) in primary cultures of dissociated hepatocytes obtained following collagenase perfusion. HAM-4 antigen, which(More)
