BACKGROUND The BAG6 complex resides in the cytosol and acts as a sorting point to target diverse hydrophobic protein substrates along their appropriate paths, including proteasomal degradation and ER membrane insertion. Composed of a trimeric complex of BAG6, TRC35 and UBL4A, the BAG6 complex is closely associated with SGTA, a co-chaperone from which it can(More)
The seven C-terminal CCCH-type zinc fingers of Nab2p bind the poly(A) tail of mRNA (∼A25). Using NMR, we demonstrated that the first four (Zf1-Zf4) contain two structurally independent tandems (TZF12 and TZF34) and bind A12 with moderate affinity (KD = 2.3 μM). Nab2p TZF12 contains a long α helix that contacts the zinc fingers Zf1 and Zf2 to arrange them(More)
The small glutamine-rich, tetratricopeptide repeat-containing protein alpha (SGTA) is an emerging player in the quality control of secretory and membrane proteins mislocalized to the cytosol, with established roles in tail-anchored (TA) membrane protein biogenesis. SGTA consists of three structural domains with individual functions, an N-terminal(More)
Metazoan SR and SR-like proteins are important regulatory factors in RNA splicing, export, translation and RNA decay. We determined the NMR structures and nucleic acid interaction modes of Gbp2 and Hrb1, two paralogous budding yeast proteins with similarities to mammalian SR proteins. Gbp2 RRM1 and RRM2 recognise preferentially RNAs containing the core(More)
Pub1p, a highly abundant poly(A)+ mRNA binding protein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, influences the stability and translational control of many cellular transcripts, particularly under some types of environmental stresses. We have studied the structure, RNA and protein recognition modes of different Pub1p constructs by NMR spectroscopy. The structure of the(More)
RNF126 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that collaborates with the BAG6 sortase complex to ubiquitinate hydrophobic substrates in the cytoplasm that are destined for proteasomal recycling. Composed of a trimeric complex of BAG6, TRC35 and UBL4A the BAG6 sortase is also associated with SGTA, a co-chaperone from which it can obtain hydrophobic substrates. Here we(More)
Sporulation in Bacillus subtilis is governed by a cascade of alternative RNA polymerase sigma factors. We previously identified a small protein Fin that is produced under the control of the sporulation sigma factor σF to create a negative feedback loop that inhibits σF -directed gene transcription. Cells deleted for fin are defective for spore formation and(More)
The fate of secretory and membrane proteins that mislocalize to the cytosol is decided by a collaboration between cochaperone SGTA (small, glutamine-rich, tetratricopeptide repeat protein alpha) and the BAG6 complex, whose operation relies on multiple transient and subtly discriminated interactions with diverse binding partners. These include chaperones,(More)
