23263864 MCJ functions as J co-chaperone of the human TIM23 pre-protein translocase.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18324624 Following transient expression of MDR-1 and MCJ, changes in the sensitivity of Sk-Ov-3 cells to paclitaxel were detected whereas expression of Src, Bcl-2 and Bcl-X(L) decreased the sensitivity of Sk-Ov-3 cells to carboplatin.
17283040 MCJ is required in these cells to prevent c-Jun-mediated expression of ABCB1 and maintain drug response.
