Structurally and Functionally Distinct Mouse Hsp70 Family Members Mot-1 and Mot-2 Proteins are Encoded by Two Alleles
AbstractAbstract The mouse mortalin proteins Mot-1 and Mot-2 differ by two amino acids in their carboxy-terminus. These proteins are differentially localized in the cell cytoplasm and have contrasting biological activities. The genetic relationship between Mot-1 and Mot-2 was deciphered by mouse family analyses. Mot-1 and Mot-2 segregated in F 1 and F 2 progeny, providing direct evidence that the two proteins are encoded by two alleles.
