Iron-sulfur cluster co-chaperone protein HscB, also known as DnaJ homolog subfamily C member 20, plays a pivotal role in mitochondrial and cytoplasmic iron-sulfur cluster assembly. It acts as a co-chaperone, essential for the incorporation of iron-sulfur clusters into various proteins, including the succinate dehydrogenase complex, crucial for the mitochondrial electron transport chain. This protein's interaction with other components facilitates the complex formation necessary for iron-sulfur cluster insertion into key metabolic enzymes.

Therapeutic significance:

Given its critical role in hematopoiesis and its involvement in Anemia, sideroblastic, 5, a disorder characterized by systemic iron overload and ineffective erythropoiesis, Iron-sulfur cluster co-chaperone protein HscB represents a promising target for therapeutic intervention. Understanding the role of Iron-sulfur cluster co-chaperone protein HscB could open doors to potential therapeutic strategies for treating sideroblastic anemia and related mitochondrial dysfunctions.
