25361606 regulated co-secretion of ERdj3 with misfolded clients directly links ER and extracellular proteostasis during conditions of ER stress.
25143379 ERdj3 mutant bound to unfolded endoplasmic reticulum proteins under steady state conditions in much greater amounts than wild-type.
25126989 Depleting ERdj3 reduced the rate of mutant GCase degradation in patient-derived fibroblasts, while increasing folding, trafficking, and function by directing GCase to the profolding ER calnexin pathway.
23378021 ERdjs appear to play the dual roles of increasing BiP affinity for clients and regulating delivery of clients to BiP.
22190034 HIV-1 gp120 is identified to have a physical interaction with DnaJ (Hsp40) homolog, subfamily B, member 11 (DNAJB11) in human HEK293 and/or Jurkat cell lines by using affinity tagging and purification mass spectrometry analyses

17976514 These findings suggest that the Cys-rich region of HEDJ and its oxidation state are important in maintaining the substrate interaction domain in a binding-competent conformation.
15544163 These data suggest that ERdj3 might have diverse roles in the ER, including that of the molecular cochaperone of BiP and an as yet unknown protective action against vero toxin.(ERDJ3)
15525676 ERdj3 is a stress-inducible endoplasmic reticulum DnaJ homologue which serves as a cofactor for BiP's interactions with unfolded substrates
15195998 This protein was identified as true homolog of yeast Scj1p.
