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. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]

GeneCards Summary for DNAJB11 Gene

DNAJB11 (DnaJ Heat Shock Protein Family (Hsp40) Member B11) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Protein processing in endoplasmic reticulum and Photodynamic therapy-induced unfolded protein response. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000283149.

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.
