Chloroplasts contain a 21-kDa co-chaperonin polypeptide (cpn21) formed by two GroES-like domains fused together in tandem. Expression of a double-domain spinach cpn21 in Escherichia coli groES mutant strains supports growth of bacteriophages lambda and T5, and will also suppress a temperature-sensitive growth phenotype of a groES619 strain. Each domain of(More)
A stable expression plasmid has been developed to overproduce the Escherichia coli GroES and GroEL molecular chaperones in large-scale cultures. This was achieved by cloning the groE operon under the transcriptional control of a bacteriophage T7 promoter to achieve regulated expression.
