From NCBI Gene:
BAG proteins compete with Hip for binding to the Hsc70/Hsp70 ATPase domain and promote substrate release. All the BAG proteins have an approximately 45-amino acid BAG domain near the C terminus but differ markedly in their N-terminal regions. The protein encoded by this gene contains a WW domain in the N-terminal region and a BAG domain in the C-terminal region. The BAG domains of BAG1, BAG2, and BAG3 interact specifically with the Hsc70 ATPase domain in vitro and in mammalian cells. All 3 proteins bind with high affinity to the ATPase domain of Hsc70 and inhibit its chaperone activity in a Hip-repressible manner. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Inhibits the chaperone activity of HSP70/HSC70 by promoting substrate release. Has anti-apoptotic activity.

- Myofibrillar myopathy, BAG3-related
- Dilated cardiomyopathy 1HH
Myopathy, myofibrillar, 6 (MFM6): A form of myofibrillar myopathy, a group of chronic neuromuscular disorders characterized at ultrastructural level by disintegration of the sarcomeric Z disc and myofibrils, and replacement of the normal myofibrillar markings by small dense granules, or larger hyaline masses, or amorphous material. MFM6 is characterized by early-onset of severe, progressive, diffuse muscle weakness associated with cardiomyopathy, severe respiratory insufficiency during adolescence, and a rigid spine in some patients. [MIM:612954]
Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1HH (CMD1HH): A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death. [MIM:613881]
