Summaries for DNAJB11 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DNAJB11 Gene

  • This gene encodes a soluble glycoprotein of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen that functions as a co-chaperone of binding immunoglobulin protein, a 70 kilodalton heat shock protein chaperone required for the proper folding and assembly of proteins in the ER. The encoded protein contains a highly conserved J domain of about 70 amino acids with a characteristic His-Pro-Asp (HPD) motif and may regulate the activity of binding immunoglobulin protein by stimulating ATPase activity.

GeneCards Summary for DNAJB11 Gene

DNAJB11 (DnaJ (Hsp40) Homolog, Subfamily B, Member 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Unfolded Protein Response. GO annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is DNAJA4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNAJB11 Gene

  • Serves as a co-chaperone for HSPA5. Binds directly to both unfolded proteins that are substrates for ERAD and nascent unfolded peptide chains, but dissociates from the HSPA5-unfolded protein complex before folding is completed. May help recruiting HSPA5 and other chaperones to the substrate. Stimulates HSPA5 ATPase activity.
