A heat-shock protein (hsp) 70 family member mortalin/glucose-regulated protein (GRP) 75/peptide-binding protein 74 (PBP74) has been localized to various cellular compartments including mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and cytoplasmic vesicles. Here we describe its interactions with an endoplasmic reticulum protein GRP94, a member of the hsp90 family of GRPs. Interactions were identified, confirmed and characterized by far-Western screening, in vivo reporter and co-immunoprecipitation assays. Interacting domains of the two proteins were also characterized by mutational analysis. Such interactions of these two GRPs may be important for function of either or both and therefore provide important information for further studies.
