Literature associating FNIP1 and primary spontaneous pneumothorax
Folliculin interacting protein 1; Acts as a co-chaperone of HSP90AA1. Inhibits the ATPase activity of HSP90AA1 leading to reduction in its chaperone activity. Facilitates the binding of client protein FLCN to HSP90AA1. Competes with the activating co-chaperone AHSA1 for binding to HSP90AA1, thereby providing a reciprocal regulatory mechanism for chaperoning of client proteins. May be involved in energy and/or nutrient sensing through the AMPK and mTOR signaling pathways. May regulate phosphorylation of RPS6KB1; Belongs to the FNIP family.
Synonyms: FNIP1, FNIP1p, hFNIP1, B3KX44, J3KNG8 ...
