Abstract. Although the mitochondrial chaperonin Hsp60 and its co-chaperonin Hsp10 have received great attention in the last decade, and it has been proposed that mutations and variations in these genes may be implicated in genetic diseases, the genome structure of the human HSP60 and HSP10 genes (also known as HSPD1 and HSPE1, respectively) has not been firmly established. The picture has been confused by the presence of many pseudogenes of both HSP60 and HSP10 and the long surviving assumption… Expand
Disease-Associated Mutations in the HSPD1 Gene Encoding the Large Subunit of the Mitochondrial HSP60/HSP10 Chaperonin Complex
TLDR
The knowledge on the effects of disturbances of the function of the HSP60/HSP10 chaperonin complex by disease-associated mutations is summarized. Expand
Single-nucleotide variations in the genes encoding the mitochondrial Hsp60/Hsp10 chaperone system and their disease-causing potential
TLDR
The data argue against the notion that the chaperonin genes play a major role in the investigated diseases, but variations in the HSPD1 and HSPE1 genes may represent genetic modifiers with subtle effects. Expand
Bovine TWINKLE and mitochondrial ribosomal protein L43 genes are regulated by an evolutionary conserved bidirectional promoter.
TLDR
The 5'-flanking genomic region of the bovine TWINKLE gene was analysed and found it was localised adjacent to the MRPL43 gene in a head-to-head orientation, suggesting that both genes are regulated by a shared bidirectional promoter. Expand
Hsp60 Friend and Foe of the Nervous System
TLDR
It is clear that this Hsp60 chaperonin is key to neuromuscular physiology but, when qualitatively and/or quantitatively abnormal causes diseases, often very serious. Expand
Molecular Chaperone Disorders: Defective Hsp60 in Neurodegeneration
TLDR
It appears that mild HSp60 deficiency primarily affects neuronal and/or glia cells whereas more severe deficiency of Hsp60 would affect all tissues and not be compatible with life. Expand
Genome-wide identification and structural analysis of heat shock protein gene families in the marine rotifer Brachionus spp.: Potential application in molecular ecotoxicology.
TLDR
Hsp family-specific domains were highly conserved in all three Brachionus spp. Expand
Complex Destabilization in the Mitochondrial Chaperonin Hsp60 Leads to Disease
TLDR
Recent studies that highlight key aspects of the mtHsp60 mechanism are discussed with a focus on some of the known disease-causing point mutations, D29G and V98I, and their effect on the protein folding reaction cycle. Expand
Characterization and function analysis of Hsp60 and Hsp10 under different acute stresses in black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon
TLDR
Results suggested that PmHsp60 could slow down protein denaturation and that Hsp60/Hsp10 may be combined to produce a chaperone complex with effective chaper one and ATPase activities. Expand
Cooperation between NRF-2 and YY-1 transcription factors is essential for triggering the expression of the PREPL-C2ORF34 bidirectional gene pair
TLDR
This study provides new insights into the complex transcriptional mechanism of a mammalian head-to-head gene pair which requires cooperative binding of multiple transcription factors to a bidirectional minimal promoter of the shared intergenic region. Expand
Structure, gene expression, and putative functions of crustacean heat shock proteins in innate immunity.
TLDR
The immunomodulatory role of HSPs indicates their potential use as an immunostimulant to enhance shrimp health for control of disease in aquaculture and indicates strong evolutionary links among this group of organisms. Expand

Molecular characterization of the 5′ control region and of two lethal alleles affecting the hsp60 gene in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Although the defects in the hsp60 gene produced by these alleles are at different levels, both behave as null mutations, suggesting that mitochondrial Drosophila melanogaster HSP60.1 is not heat inducible. Expand
Genetic complexity of the human hsp 60 gene.
TLDR
It is concluded that hsp 60 is encoded by a single highly fragmented gene, that co-exists with multiple HSP 60 retro-pseudogenes, normally not expressed. Expand
The genes encoding mammalian chaperonin 60 and chaperonin 10 are linked head-to-head and share a bidirectional promoter.
TLDR
The arrangement of the mammalian chaperonin genes suggests the potential to provide the coordinated regulation of their products in a manner that is mechanistically distinct from, yet conceptually similar to, that employed by the bacterial chaper onin (groE) operon. Expand
Primary structure of a human mitochondrial protein homologous to the bacterial and plant chaperonins and to the 65-kilodalton mycobacterial antigen.
TLDR
The observed high degree of homology between human P1 and mycobacterial antigen also suggests the possible involvement of this protein in certain autoimmune diseases. Expand
Nucleotide sequences and novel structural features of human and Chinese hamster hsp60 (chaperonin) gene families.
TLDR
Southern blot analysis of human, mouse, and Chinese hamster DNA, digested with unique restriction enzymes, indicates the presence of about 8-12 genes for hsp60 in the vertebrate genomes, however, sequence data suggest that most of these genes, except one (per haploid genome), are likely to be nonfunctional pseudogenes.

Mapping And Characterization of the Eukaryotic Early Pregnancy Factor/Chaperonin 10 Gene Family
TLDR
Using a monochromosomal somatic cell hybrid panel, the gene for human chaperonin 10 is mapped to chromosome 2 and other members of the human gene family map to several chromosomes. Expand
Unfolding the role of chaperones and chaperonins in human disease.
TLDR
The structure and function of chaperones in bacterial and eukaryotic cells is described and contemporary research concerning the role of these proteins in several human diseases is summarized, concentrating on the genes coding for chaperone and chaperonin proteins. Expand
The Serotonin 1a Receptor Gene Contains a TATA-less Promoter that Responds to MAZ and Sp1 (*)
TLDR
The structure and function of the 5′-flanking region of the mouse and human serotonin 1a receptor gene have been analyzed and it is raised the possibility that MAZ may act at a variety of promoters through the guanosine-cytosine-rich sequences generally thought to serve as binding sites for the Sp1 family of transcription factors.

Hereditary spastic paraplegia SPG13 is associated with a mutation in the gene encoding the mitochondrial chaperonin Hsp60.
SPG13, an autosomal dominant form of pure hereditary spastic paraplegia, was recently mapped to chromosome 2q24-34 in a French family. Here we present genetic data indicating that SPG13 is associatedExpand
The role of chaperone-assisted folding and quality control in inborn errors of metabolism: Protein folding disorders
TLDR
It is concluded that disorders caused by many missense mutations are complex diseases in which the mutation itself is a necessary major primary component, but that its effect may be modified by cellular conditions and possibly by genetic variations in the quality control systems. Expand
