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 cerevisiae Sis1 co-chaperone required for the initiation of translation. TcJ6 protein was expressed as a polypeptide of 36.5 kDa at a… CONTINUE READING
