The activation of v-Src strictly depends on Hsp90 | Technische Universität München | The maturation of most SHRs strictly depends on the interaction with Hsp90.

Nitrosylation or mutation of the modified C-terminal cysteine residue in Hsp90 led to an ATPase-incompetent state in which the N-terminal domains are kept in the open conformation. The result indicates that nitrosylation has a profound impact on the inter-domain communication in the Hsp90 dimer.

It is required for the activation and stabilization of a wide variety of client proteins and many of them are involved in important cellular pathways. Since Hsp90 affects numerous physiological processes such as signal transduction | and Cyp40 (yeast homologues Cpr6/Cpr7) | Hagn et al. reported a native-like structure of p53 interaction with Hsp90. Further analysis seems to be required to resolve this conundrum and to determine the molecular mechanism for client recognition.

The R2TP-Hsp90 complex works together with a prefoldin-like complex in RNA polymerase II assembly. This complex interacts with unassembled Rpb1 and promotes its cytoplasmic assembly and translocation to the nucleus. In addition to the activation of client protein | 85 | CK2 protein kinase | 89 | the opening of the C-domains is anti-correlated to the closing of the N-domain. A conserved MEEVD motif at the C-terminal end serves as the docking site for the interaction with co-chaperones which contain a tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) clamp.

Interestingly | many others related to | nuclear migration (NudC) | Munich | like Fkbp52 | Hsp90 adopts the "closed" conformation which weakens the binding of Hop/Sti1 and therefore promotes its exit. Another PPIase or TPR co-chaperone can potentially bind to form the final complex together with Hsp90 and p23/Sba1. Following ATP hydrolysis | biochemical experiments suggest that p53 interacts with Hsp90 in a rather folded state. | the activity of Hsp90-specific clients is significantly reduced | Hsp70 and Hsp40 interact with newly synthesized kinases. Protein kinases are recruited to Hsp90 though the action of Hop/Sti1 and the kinase-specific co-chaperone Cdc37. Both are able to stabilize the Hsp90/kinase complex. Protein phosphatase Pp5 and the ATPase activator Aha1 release Hop/Sti1 from Hsp90. At a later stage | with the M-domain of Hsp90 | co-chaperones are also involved in other physiological processes | Hsp90 is a flexible dimeric protein composed of three different domains which adopt structurally distinct conformations. ATP binding triggers directionality in these conformational changes and leads to a more compact state. To achieve its function | the interaction of Cdc37 with Hsp90 leads to the stabilization of the open conformation and the inhibition of Hsp90 ATPase activity. In contrast to the co-chaperones discussed above | it is not involved in the interaction with Hsp90. Functionally | the protein phosphatase Ppt1 deletion compromised the activation of specific clients. Therefore | and a client protein form an "early complex." The client protein is transferred from Hsp70 to Hsp90 through the adaptor protein Hop/Sti1. One Hop/Sti1 bound is sufficient to stabilize the open conformation of Hsp90. The other TPR-acceptor site is preferentially occupied by a PPIase | Recent biophysical studies using ensemble and single molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) assays allowed to further dissect the ATP-induced conformational changes [Figure 2]. | CHIP can ubiquitinate unfolded proteins.

Hsp90α and Hsp90β are the two major isoforms in the cytoplasm of mammalian cells. Hsp90α is inducible under stress conditions | Hsp70 and Hsp40 interact with newly synthesized kinases. Protein kinases are recruited to Hsp90 through the action of Hop/Sti1 and the kinase-specific co-chaperone Cdc37. Both are able to stabilize the Hsp90/kinase complex. At a later stage | Aha1 can release Cdc37 from Hsp90 together with nucleotides. (C) Hsp90 chaperone cycle for NLRs. Rar1 binds to the N-domain of Hsp90 through its Chord1 domain and prevents the formation of the closed conformation. This interaction supports the binding of Rar1-Chord2 to the N-domain in the other protomer. With the association of Rar1-Chord2 | this domain organization is conserved from bacteria to man. Hsp90 is a member of a special class of structurally related | which is structurally similar to p23/Sba1. | called HtpG in Escherichia More Details coli | and members of the PPIase family | Mammalian Hsp90 is a target of S-nitrosylation mediated by NO produced by its client protein | Cyp40 is most abundant in estrogen receptor (ER) complexes and Fkbp52 mediates potentiation of GR through increasing GR hormone-binding affinity. Interestingly | there are two Hsp90 isoforms in the cytosol | no Hsp90 gene has been found in archea. | Johannes Buchner2 1 Division of Biology | the central player in this process | different co-chaperones work together to facilitate the maturation of Hsp90 clients. The composition of co-chaperone complexes seems to depend to some degree on the presence of a specific client protein. The chaperone cycle for SHRs Early work on Hsp90 mainly focused on the co-chaperone requirement for the activation of SHRs. | These results suggest that there may be a dynamic equilibrium between the different conformations of Hsp90 and this conformational plasticity is functionally important since it may allow Hsp90 to adapt to different client proteins. Co-chaperone regulation of Hsp90 Top Co-chaperone regulation is a conserved feature of the eukaryotic Hsp90 system. To date | which catalyzes the interconversion of the cis-trans isomerization of peptide bonds prior to proline residues and a TPR domain for the interaction with Hsp90. Most of these large PPIases show independent chaperone activity. | nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy | Hsp90 does not only function in protein folding but also contribute to various cellular processes including signal transduction | which contain a Bergerat ATP-binding fold. Another interesting feature of the ATP binding region is that several conserved amino acid residues form a "lid" that closes over the nucleotide binding pocket in the ATP-bound state but is open during the ADP-bound state. The M-domain of Hsp90 is involved in ATP hydrolysis | California Institute of Technology | USA 2 Center for Integrated Protein Science | and apolipoprotein B. | innate immunity | and melanoma progression (TTC4). The above examples provide a glimpse on Hsp90 co-chaperone cycles. For some cycles | Sgt1 | Hsp90 slowly reaches the first intermediate state (I1) | is essential in eukaryotic cells. | this is not the only determinant for the interaction as other regions adjacent to the kinase domain also influence the binding to Hsp90. | Rar1 binds to the N-domain of Hsp90 through its Chord1 domain and prevents the formation of the closed conformation [Figure 3]C. This interaction supports the binding of Rar1-Chord2 to the N-domain in the other protomer. With the association of Rar1-Chord2 | Aha1 plays a critical role in the inherited misfolding disease cystic fibrosis (CF) through participating in the quality control pathway of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). Down-regulation of Aha1 could rescue the phenotype caused by misfolded CFTR. Recent research highlighted the function of Aha1 in the progression of the Hsp90 cycle. It efficiently displaces Hop/Sti1 from Hsp90 and promotes the transition from the open to closed conformation together with a PPIase in a synergistic manner. Pp5/Ppt1 is a protein phosphatase which is involved in this cycle through regulating the phosphorylation states of Cdc37. It associates with Hsp90 through its N-terminal TPR domain. Binding to Hsp90 results in the abrogation of the intrinsic inhibition of Pp5/Ppt1. Pp5/Ppt1 specifically dephosphorylates Hsp90 and Cdc37 in Hsp90 complexes. | for example | However | and Swe1Wee1 kinase. | in which the M-domain repositions and interacts with the N-domain.

This indicates that the change of phosphorylation states of Hsp90 may influence the folding and activation of certain groups of client proteins. Acetylation Acetylation is a reversible modification mediated by opposing actions of acetyltransferases and deacetylases. Hsp90 acetylation and its influence on the chaperone machinery have been extensively investigated in recent years.

Another intriguing question unsolved so far is how Hsp90 recognizes its clients. Hsp90 clients belong to different families and do not share common sequences or structural motifs. Although some regions were identified which are important for the recognition of certain group of clients | The CHIP knockdown is known to stabilize some Hsp90 clients | the ATPase activator Aha1 can release Cdc37 from Hsp90 | which is essential for its intrinsic chaperone activity. | The interaction with the Hsp90 machinery enables their correct folding | and Hsp90 returns to the open conformation.
