A cDNA clone that encodes a chloroplast-localizing isoform of serine acetyltransferase (SATase) (EC 2.3.1.30) was isolated from spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.). The cDNA encodes a polypeptide of 347 amino acids containing a putative transit peptide of ca. 60-70 amino acids at the N-terminal. Deduced amino acid sequence of SATase from spinach exhibited(More)
Escherichia coli heat shock transcription factor sigma32 is rapidly degraded in vivo, with a half-life of about 1 min. A set of proteins that includes the DnaK chaperone team (DnaK, DnaJ, GrpE) and ATP-dependent proteases (FtsH, HslUV, etc.) are involved in degradation of sigma32. To gain further insight into the regulation of sigma32 stability, we isolated(More)
