|Function||Co-chaperone for HSP70 and HSC70 chaperone proteins. Acts as a nucleotide-exchange factor (NEF) promoting the release of ADP from the HSP70 and HSC70 proteins thereby triggering client/substrate protein release. Nucleotide release is mediated via its binding to the nucleotide-binding domain (NBD) of HSPA8/HSC70 where as the substrate release is mediated via its binding to the substrate-binding domain (SBD) of HSPA8/HSC70 (PubMed:9873016, PubMed:27474739). Has anti-apoptotic activity (PubMed:10597216). Plays a role in the HSF1 nucleocytoplasmic transport (PubMed:26159920).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Colocalizes with HSF1 to the nucleus upon heat stress (PubMed:26159920)|

BAG family molecular chaperone regulator 3(BAG3) is a member of a conserved family of cyto-protective proteins that bind to and regulate Hsp70 family molecular chaperones. BAG3 mutations are responsible for familial dilated cardiomyopathy. BAG3 polymorphisms are also associated with sporadic forms of the disease together with HSPB7 locus. In muscle cells, BAG3 cooperates with the molecular chaperones Hsc70 and HspB8 to induce the degradation of mechanically damaged cytoskeleton components in lysosomes. This process is called chaperone-assisted selective autophagy(CASA) and is essential for maintaining muscle activity in flies, mice and men.
