HSP90 recognizes the N-terminus of huntingtin involved in regulation of huntingtin aggregation by USP19

Huntington’s disease (HD) is caused by aberrant expansion of polyglutamine (polyQ) in the N-terminus of huntingtin (Htt). Our previous study has demonstrated that HSP90 is involved in the triage decision of Htt, but how HSP90 recognizes and regulates Htt remains elusive. We investigated the interaction between HSP90 and the N-terminal fragments of Htt (Htt-N), such as the N...

The N-terminal dimerization is required for TDP-43 splicing activity

TDP-43 is a nuclear factor that functions in promoting pre-mRNA splicing. Deletion of the N-terminal domain (NTD) and nuclear localization signal (NLS) (i.e., TDP-35) results in mislocalization to cytoplasm and formation of inclusions. However, how the NTD functions in TDP-43 activity and proteinopathy remains largely unknown. Here, we studied the structure and function of the...
