- Phosphotyrosine confers client specificity to Hsp90Matthias P Mayer
Zentrum fur Molekulare Biologie der Universitat Heidelberg, DKFZ ZMBH Alliance, Heidelberg 69120, Germany
Mol Cell 37:295-6. 2010..In this issue of Molecular Cell, Mollapour et al. (2010) report a new tyrosine phosphorylation site in Hsp90, which is essential for Hsp90's interaction with a subset of its client proteins, notably protein kinases...
- Hsp70 chaperones: cellular functions and molecular mechanismM P Mayer
