“Systematic Characterization of Human Chaperone/Client Interaction Networks”

Host:  Prof. Maurice Ringuette <maurice.ringuette@utoronto.ca>

Chaperones are abundant, highly conserved cellular proteins that promote the folding and function of their substrate proteins (clients). In vivo, chaperones also associate with a large and diverse set of cofactors (cochaperones) that regulate their specificity and function. However, how these co=chaperones regulate protein folding and whether they have chaperone-independent biological functions is largely unknown. My lab is characterizing human chaperone/co-chaperone/client interaction networks with multiple functional proteomics approaches. Currently, our main focus is on the Hsp70/Hsp40 chaperone/co-chaperone network, which regulates thousands of diverse client proteins in all organisms.
