Molecular and functional analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans CHIP, a homologue of Mammalian CHIP.

A recently identified molecule C-terminus of Hsc70 interacting protein (CHIP) has been reported to be an E3 ubiquitin ligase collaborating with molecular chaperones for the degradation of misfolded or unfolded proteins. The physiological roles of CHIP in animal and plant development remain largely unknown. Here, we show that the knockdown of CeCHIP by RNAi and knockout by a deletion mutation arrests the development of the animal at the larval stage. CeCHIP expresses ubiquitously in all tissues but there are tissue specific variations of expression level. CeCHIP produces dose dependent phenotypes in vivo. Over expression of CHIP causes embryonic lethality, while a comparatively lower level of over expression causes locomotion and egg laying defects, and the CHIP over expressed animals form dauers at a higher temperature.[1]
