Heat shock protein 90-dependent (geldanamycin-inhibited) movement of the glucocorticoid receptor through the cytoplasm to the nucleus requires intact cytoskeleton.


We use here a chimera of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) and the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) to test the notion that the protein chaperone heat shock protein-90 (hsp90) is required for steroid-dependent translocation of the receptor through the cytoplasm along cytoskeletal tracks. The GFP-GR fusion protein undergoes steroid-mediated translocation from… (More)
