[1] Characterization of human small heat shock protein hspb1 α-crystallin domain localized mutants associated with hereditary motor neuron diseases / S. Weeks, L. Muranova, M. Heirbaut et al. // Scientific reports. — 2018. — Vol. 8, no. 1. — P. 688. Congenital mutations in human small heat shock protein HSPB1 (HSP27) have been linked to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a commonly occurring peripheral neuropathy. Understanding the molecular mechanism of such mutations is indispensable towards developing future therapies for this currently incurable disorder. Here we describe the physico-chemical properties of the autosomal dominant HSPB1 mutants R127W, S135F and R136W. Despite having a nominal effect on thermal stability, the three mutations induce dramatic changes to quaternary structure. At high concentrations or under crowding conditions, the mutants form assemblies that are approximately two times larger than those formed by the wild-type protein. At low concentrations, the mutants have a higher propensity to dissociate into small oligomers, while the dissociation of R127W and R135F mutants is enhanced by MAPKAP kinase-2 mediated phosphorylation. Specific differences are observed in the ability to form hetero-oligomers with the homologue HSPB6 (HSP20). For wild-type HSPB1 this only occurs at or above physiological temperature, whereas the R127W and S135F mutants form hetero-oligomers with HSPB6 at 4 oC, and the R136W mutant fails to form hetero-oligomers. Combined, the results suggest that the disease-related mutations of HSPB1 modify its self-assembly and interaction with partner proteins thus affecting normal functioning of HSPB1 in the cell.
