Intracellular proteins are targeted for proteolytic degradation in the lysosome with the aid of chaperones. Heat shock cognate 71 kDa protein (HSPA8) acts as the constitutive chaperone that binds substrate proteins in the cytosol. HSPA8 recognizes a motif based on the charge of the amino acids (Chiang H et al. 1989, Dice JF et al. 1990). This allows the motif to have multiple sequence possibilities and also create a motif through post-translational modifications such as phosphorylation and acetylation. Once bound with HSPA8, the substrates are targeted to the lysosome or endosome.
