Protein phosphatase 5 (PP5) exhibits low basal activity due to the autoinhibitory properties of its N-terminal and C-terminal domains but can be activated approximately 40-fold in vitro by polyunsaturated fatty acids. To identify residues involved in regulating PP5 activity, we performed scanning mutagenesis of its N-terminal tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR)(More)
The sequential binding of heat shock protein 90 (hsp90) to a series of tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) proteins is critical to its function as a molecular chaperone. We have used site-directed mutagenesis to clarify the structural basis for the binding of hsp90 to the TPR domain of phosphoprotein phosphatase 5 (PP5). This TPR domain was chosen for study(More)
The sequential binding of different tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) proteins to heat shock protein 90 (hsp90) is essential to its chaperone function in vivo. We have previously shown that three basic residues in the TPR domain of PP5 are required for binding to the acidic C-terminal domain of hsp90. We have now tested which acidic residues in this C-terminal(More)
Steroid-hormone-receptor maturation is a multi-step process that involves several TPR (tetratricopeptide repeat) proteins that bind to the maturation complex via the C-termini of hsp70 (heat-shock protein 70) and hsp90 (heat-shock protein 90). We produced a random T7 peptide library to investigate the roles played by the C-termini of the two heat-shock(More)
