1M7K: Solution Structure of the SODD BAG Domain
The solution structure of the SODD BAG domain reveals additional electrostatic interactions in the HSP70 complexes of SODD subfamily BAG domains
FEBS Lett. (2004) 558 p.101-106
The solution structure of an N-terminally extended construct of the SODD BAG domain was determined by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. A homology model of the SODD-BAG/HSP70 complex reveals additional possible interactions that are specific for the SODD subfamily of BAG domains while the overall geometry of the complex remains the same. Relaxation rate measurements show that amino acids N358-S375 of SODD which were previously assigned to its BAG domain are not structured in our construct. The SODD BAG domain is thus indeed smaller than the homologous domain in Bag1 defining a new subfamily of BAG domains.
