CHIP (Carboxy Terminus of Hsp70-interacting Protein, Antigen NY-CO-7, CLL-associated Antigen KW-8, E3 Ubiquitin-protein Ligase CHIP, HSPABP2, NY-CO-7, PP1131, SDCCAG7, STIP1 Homology and U Box-containing Protein 1, STUB1, UBOX1)
Description:
CHIP is an E3 ligase for nNOS whose action is facilitated by (and possibly requires) its interaction with nNOS-bound hsp70. Co-chaperone CHIP, possibly with another E3 ligase(s), modulates the ubiquitylation of mutant Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase and renders them more susceptible for proteasomal degradation. CHIP functions as a negative regulator of AR transcriptional activity by promoting AR degradation. CHIP-Hsc70 complex ubiquitinates phosphorylated tau and enhances cell survival. CHIP can interact with the Smad1/Smad4 proteins and block BMP signal transduction through the ubiquitin-mediated degradation of Smad proteins. CHIP E3 controls both the association of Hsp70/Hsp90 chaperones with ErbB2 and the down-regulation of ErbB2 induced by inhibitors of Hsp90. CHIP is associated with Parkin and enhances its ubiquitin ligase activity related to Parkinson's disease.
