We have used affinity panning of libraries of bacteriophages that display random octapeptide or dodecapeptide sequences at the N-terminus of the adsorption protein (pIII) to characterize peptides that bind to the endoplasmic reticulum chaperone BiP and to develop a scoring system that predicts potential BiP-binding sequences in naturally occurring(More)
The molecular chaperone BiP purified from bovine liver (bBiP) exhibits a low basal level of ATPase activity that can be stimulated 3-6-fold by synthetic peptides (Flynn, G. C., Chappell, T. G., and Rothman, J. E. (1989) Science 245, 385-390). By contrast, recombinant murine BiP (rBiP) purified to homogeneity following expression in Escherichia coli exhibits(More)
