Cellular proleostasis is maintained by a system consisting of molecular chaperones, heat shock proteins (Hsps) and proteins involved with degradation. Among the proteins that play important roles in the function of this system is Hsp90, which acts as a node of this network, interacting with at least 10% of the proteome. Hsp90 is ATP-dependent, participates in critical cell events and protein maturation and interacts with large numbers of cochaperones. The study of Hsp90 orthologs is justified by their differences in ATPase activity levels and conformational changes caused by Hsp90 interaction with nucleotides. This study reports the characterization of Hsp90 from Aedes aegypti, a vector of several diseases in many regions of the planet. Aedes aegypti Hsp90, AaHsp90, was cloned, purified and characterized for its ATPase and chaperone activities and structural conformation. These parameters indicate that it has the characteristics of eukalyotic Hsp90s and resembles orthologs from yeast rather than from human. Finally, constitutive and increased stress expression in Aedes cells was confirmed. Taken together, the results presented here help to understand the relationship between structure and function in the Hsp90 family and have strong potential to form the basis for studies on the network of chaperone and Hsps in Aedes.
