TTC5

Official Full Name
tetratricopeptide repeat domain 5
Background
Tetratricopeptide repeat protein 5 (TTC5) is a member of a diverse group of functionally distinct proteins that are characterized by containing one or more tetratricopeptide repeats. Each motif consists of two anti-parallel a-helices such that tandem arrays of TPR motifs generate a right-handed helical structure with an amphipathic channel that may serve to accommodate the complementary region of a target protein. While the exact function of TTC5 remains unclear, it is thought that the TPR motifs serve to mediate protein-protein interactions such as those seen with protein chaperones HSP70 and HSP90 and some proteins involved in cell stress response signaling pathways such as protein phosphatase 5, suggesting that TTC5 may also function via protein-protein interactions mediated by its TPR motifs.
