To investigate the regulatory mechanisms controlling expression of the vimentin-encoding gene (Vim) during mouse myeloid leukemia M1 cell differentiation, mouse Vim was cloned and the transcriptional activity of its 5' promoter region was analysed by chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) assay. Analyses of various deletion mutants revealed that a 188-bp(More)
The 70 kDa heat-shock proteins (Hsp70s) are highly conserved chaperones that are involved in several cellular processes, such as protein folding, disaggregation and translocation. In this study, the crystal structures of the human Hsp70 nucleotide-binding domain (NBD) fragment were determined in the nucleotide-free state and in complex with adenosine(More)
ADP-ATP exchange by the molecular chaperone Hsp70 is enhanced by several cochaperones. BAG5 consists of five BAG domains and associates with the nucleotide-binding domain (NBD) of Hsp70. The overexpression of BAG5 in the cytosol reportedly disturbs Hsp70-mediated protein refolding and induces Parkinson's disease. In the present study, we found that the(More)
