Prip-Buus C, et al. (1996) Role of the mitochondrial DnaJ homologue, Mdj1p, in the prevention of heat-induced protein aggregation. FEBS Lett 380(1-2):142-6
Abstract: The role of the mitochondrial Hsp70 system in the prevention of heat-induced protein aggregation was studied in isolated mitochondria from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Firefly luciferase was employed as a thermolabile tester protein. After shift to 40 degrees Celsius transient increase of mt-Hsp70/luciferase complex was observed, which required functional Mdj1p and Mge1p, the mitochondrial homologues of DnaJ and GrpE. The kinetics of luciferase aggregation, however, were not influenced by mutations in either mt-Hsp70 or Mge1p. Only the absence of Mdj1p led to enhanced protein aggregation. Thus, a central role in the transient protection against heat stress is attributed to this mitochondrial DnaJ homologue.
