Hsp90 Oligomerization Process: How Can p23 Drive the Chaperone Machineries?

Abstract : The 90-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp90) is a highly flexible dimer that is able to self-associate in the presence of divalent cations or under heat shock. In a previous work, we focused on the Mg2+-induced oligomerization process of Hsp90, and characterized the oligomers. Combining analytical ultracentrifugation, size-exclusion chromatography coupled to multi-angle laser light scattering and high-mass matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry, we studied the interaction of p23 with both Hsp90 dimer and oligomers. Even if p23 predominantly binds the Hsp90 dimer, we demonstrated, for the first time, that p23 is also able to interact with Hsp90 oligomers, shifting the Hsp90 dimer-oligomers equilibrium toward dimer. Our results showed that the Hsp90:p23 binding stoichiometry decreases with the Hsp90 oligomerization degree. Therefore, we propose a model in which p23 would act as a "protein wedge" regarding the Hsp90 dimer closure and the Hsp90 oligomerization process.
