Although heat shock proteins (HSPs) were discovered as inducible proteins by the physical stress to protect cells, recent evidence has suggested that HSPs are likely involved in cell cycle control under normal conditions without stress. In the present study, we demonstrated that 73hsc (heat shock cognate protein), which belongs to the HSP70 family of molecular chaperones, interacts with P27Kip1, an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase, during G1/S transition. 73hsc was detected in the immunoprecipitates with anti-P27Kip1 antibody and, vice versa, P27Kip1 was present in the immunoprecipitates with anti-73hsc antibody by Western blotting using growth-stimulated rat thyroid FRTL-5 cells. This complex formation of 73hsc and P27Kip1 was cell cycle dependent and its maximum formation was observed at G1/S transition where the level of P27Kip1 dramatically decreased. ATP dissociated this complex formation in a dose-dependent manner. These data indicated that 73hsc might be involved in the cell cycle progression through the regulation of cell cycle regulators such as P27Kip1.
