- Von Hippel-Lindau binding protein 1
Name=von Hippel-Lindau binding protein 1
von Hippel-Lindau–binding protein 1 (VBP1), also known as "
prefoldin3", is a chaperone proteinthat binds to von Hippel-Lindau protein and transports it from perinuclear granules to the nucleus or cytoplasminside the cell.

VBP1 is a 197–
amino acidheterohexamer comprising two prefoldin-α and four prefoldin-β subunits, and is a member of the prefoldin-α subunit family.cite web | title = NiceProt report: P61758 (Prefoldin 3, human) | url = http://www.expasy.org/cgi-bin/niceprot.pl?P61758 | date = 2007-07-10 | accessdate = 2007-07-17] It is ubiquitously expressed in tissues, and is located in the cell in the nucleus and cytoplasm. The VBP1 gene is located at Xq28.
