Hsp70-interacting protein, N-terminal (IPR034649)

Short name: Hip_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



The Hsc70/Hsp70-interacting protein (Hip, also p48 or suppressor of tumorigenicity ST13) functions as a regulator of the cyclic action of Hsp70. Hip forms homodimers, and this entry represents the N-terminal dimerization domain, which may not be directly involved in its regulatory function. A central domain of Hip that contains TPR repeats binds the ATPase domain of Hsp70 and slows the release of ADP [PMID: 23812373, PMID: 22387434, PMID: 8887650, PMID: 11599566].
