A DnaJ-like protein homologous to the yeast co-chaperone Sis1 (TcJ6p) is involved in initiation of translation in Trypanosoma cruzi.


In eukaryotes, proteins homologous to the bacterial DnaJ protein are involved in regulation of the Hsp70 molecular chaperones, which are implicated in a variety of protein biogenesis pathways. We report herewith the molecular characterization of a T. cruzi DnaJ gene, termed TcJ6, encoding a protein that displays high sequence homology with the Saccharomyces… (More)
