Structural and Functional Diversity Among Eukaryotic Hsp70 Nucleotide Exchange Factors
Abstract:Since their recent identification, eukaryotic Hsp70 nucleotide exchange factors (NEFs) have gained increasing interest due to their engagement in vital cellular processes. Here, I summarize our current knowledge of their mechanisms of action, regulations and cellular functions as well as their relevance for human diseases such as cystic fibrosis or amyloidoses.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
