Geldanamycin is a benzoquinone ansamycin antibiotic which binds to Hsp90 (Heat Shock Protein 90) and alters it function. HSP90 client proteins play important roles in the regulation of the cell cycle, cell growth, cell survival, apoptosis, and oncogenesis. Cdc28 provides a molecular link between Hsp90, morphogenesis, and cell cycle progression in Candida albicans. Epidermal growth factor receptors with tyrosine kinase domain mutations exhibit reduced Cbl association, poor ubiquitylation, and down-regulation but are efficiently internalized. Inhibition of HSP90 in Trypanosoma cruzi. Induces a stress response but no stage differentiation.
