Topic: Unlocking the secrets of RWDD4, a protein of unknown function

Over a decade ago our lab discovered that a highly conserved gene known as TSAP11 was upregulated when mutant androgen receptor genes were transfected into cells. We turned our attention to other things, but in the intervening decade, TSAP11 became known as RWDD4. This gene appears to encode a cytosolic protein which associates with the aggresome, whose function is involved in protein turnover. That is the sum total of knowledge about this protein. We are now returning to the study of RWDD4 to discern its true function at the biochemical and cellular level.
