The chaperone connection to the origins of the eukaryotic organelles

, : The chaperone connection to the origins of the eukaryotic organelles. FEBS (Federation of European Biochemical Societies) Letters 341(2-3): 146-151

The heat-shock 60 proteins (Hsp60) constitute a subset of molecular chaperones essential for the survival of the cell, present in eubacteria as well as in eukaryotic organelles. Here, we have employed these highly conserved proteins for the inferences of the origins of the organelles. Hsp60s present in mitochondria from different eukaryotic lineages formed a clade, which showed the closest relationship to that of the Ehrlichia/Rickettsia cluster among the alpha-Proteobacteria. This, in addition to phenotypic characteristics, suggests that these obligate intracellular parasites and the lineage that generated the mitochondrion shared last common ancestry. In turn, Hsp60s present in chloroplasts from plants and a red alga, respectively, clustered specifically with those of the cyanobacteria, suggesting that ail plastids derive exclusively from this eubacterial lineage.

Various strategies have been designed to assess in vitro donor-graft compatibility in pig-to-primate xenotransplantation models. Most of them are based on a cytolysis assessment by exposing donor tissue to host serum with investigations by flow cy...

The effect of cyclic AMP-elevating agents on mitogen-stimulated IL2 production was examined. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) inhibited IL2 production by human peripheral blood T cells stimulated with PHA. In contrast, PGE2 did not inhibit PHA-stimulated I...

The role of viral infections in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis remains controversial largely due to inconsistent detection of the virus in atherosclerotic lesions. However, viral infections elicit a pro-inflammatory cascade known to be athero...
