HSPD1

(redirected from CPN60)

HSPD1

A gene on chromosome 2q33.1 that encodes a mitochondrial protein of the chaperonin family, which may function as a signalling molecule in the innate immune system. It is essential for the folding and assembly of newly imported proteins in mitochondria. HSPD1 is adjacent to a related gene; the region between the two acts as a bidirectional promoter.

Molecular pathology
HSPD1 mutations cause autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia 13.

DNA extracts were diluted 1:10 with 10mM Tris-Cl, pH 8.5, and used as a template in PCR to amplify the 16S rRNA-encoding gene F2nR2 fragment with primers R16F2n/R16R2 and cpn60 Universal Target (cpn60 UT) sequence with primers H279p/H280p: D0317/D0318 (1:7 ratio) (Gundersen & Lee 1996; Dumonceaux et al.
A newly designed loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay based on cpn60 (encoding for chaperonin 60) was carried out in a total volume of 25 [micro]L containing 0.5 [micro]L each of pho-F3 and Pyo-B3 primer (25pmol/[micro]L) equivalent to 0.5 [micro]M final concentration, 1 [micro]L each of Pyo-LoopF and Pyo-LoopB primer (25pmol/[micro]L) equivalent to 1.0 [micro]M final concentration, 2 [micro]L each of Pyo-FIP and Pyo-BIP primer (25pmol/[micro]L) equivalent to 2.0 [micro]M final concentration, and 15 [micro]L Isothermal Master Mix Iso-001 (Optigene, Horsham, UK).
PCR reactions were performed for the seven housekeeping genes: gltA, gyrB, gdhB, recA, cpn60, gpi, and rpoD as previously reported by Bartual et al.
tuberculosis is known to encode two molecular chaperones, Cpn60.1 and Cpn60.2, which function as modulators of myeloid cells among other regulatory functions [112].
Briefly, this method is based on analysis of 21 informative SNPs in 10 chromosomal loci (gltA, recA, cpn60, gyrB, gdhB, rpoD, fusA, pyrG, rplB, and rpoB) and is used at the University of Oxford and the Pasteur Institute multilocus sequence typing (MLST) schemes.

El tipo I de estas chaperoninas se encuentra en eubacterias, mitocondrias y cloroplastos, en donde se requiere generalmente la accion concertada de la chaperonina 60 (Cpn60, GroEL) y la chaperonina 10 (Cpn10, GroES) (63, 65).
