    ..Finally, we discuss the "Hsp90-addiction" of cancer cells, and suggest a role for Hsp90 in tumor evolution. ..

    ..The tumor kinome appears to become addicted to the Hsp90-Cdc37 chaperone system, thus, targeting Hsp90, Cdc37, and CK2 is a promising strategy for cancer treatment. ..

    ..We suggest a possible general role for CK2-catalyzed phosphorylation in the regulation of NLS-dependent protein nuclear translocation. ..

    ..Altogether, our results demonstrate that the molecular chaperone TRiC/CCT is essential for correct protein folding, DYRK1A binding, and nuclear accumulation of WDR68. ..

    Miyata Y, Nishida E. CK2 binds, phosphorylates, and regulates its pivotal substrate Cdc37, an Hsp90-cochaperone. Mol Cell Biochem. 2005;274:171-9 pubmed
    ..The structure of Cdc37 and physiological importance of the CK2-Cdc37 interaction are discussed. ..
  8. Miyata Y, Nishida E. DYRK1A binds to an evolutionarily conserved WD40-repeat protein WDR68 and induces its nuclear translocation. Biochim Biophys Acta. 2011;1813:1728-39 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, these results suggest that DYRK1A binds specifically to WDR68 in cells, and that the binding, but not the phosphorylation event, induces the nuclear translocation of WDR68. ..
