View in BioMuta


DNAJC7 is a member of the DNAJ heat shock protein 40 family. This family is characterized by two N-terminal tetratricopeptide repeat domains and a C-terminal DNAJ domain. DNAJC7 functions as a co-chaperone regulating the molecular chaperones HSP70 and HSP90 in folding of steroid receptors, such as the glucocorticoid receptor and the progesterone receptor. There are pseudogenes of this gene on chromosomes 1 and 6. Multiple transcript variants of DNAJC7 exist from alternate splicing.
