Fe-S cluster Hsp70 chaperones: the ATPase cycle and protein interactions

AbstractHsp70 chaperones and their obligatory J-protein cochaperones function together in many cellular processes. Via cycles of binding to short stretches of exposed amino acids on substrate proteins, Hsp70/J-protein chaperones not only facilitate protein folding but also drive intracellular protein transport, biogenesis of cellular structures, and disassembly of protein complexes. The biogenesis of iron–sulfur (Fe–S) clusters is one of the critical cellular processes that require Hsp70/J-protein action. Fe–S clusters are ubiquitous cofactors critical for activity of proteins performing diverse functions in, for example, metabolism, RNA/DNA transactions, and environmental sensing. This biogenesis process can be divided into two sequential steps: first, the assembly of an Fe–S cluster on a conserved scaffold protein, and second, the transfer of the cluster from the scaffold to a recipient protein. The second step involves Hsp70/J-protein chaperones. Via binding to the scaffold, chaperones enable cluster transfer to recipient proteins. In eukaryotic cells mitochondria have a key role in Fe–S cluster biogenesis. In this review, we focus on methods that enabled us to dissect protein interactions critical for the function of Hsp70/J-protein chaperones in the mitochondrial process of Fe–S cluster biogenesis in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
