Crystallization and preliminary X-ray investigation of the Escherichia coli molecular chaperone cpn60 (GroEL).


The Escherichia coli molecular chaperone, cpn60 (GroEL), has been purified from an overproducing E. coli strain and crystallized. Of the two crystal forms that were obtained, one was found to be suitable for crystallographic and structural studies at low resolution. Preliminary X-ray investigation of the crystals show unit cell dimensions: a = 143.3, b… (More)
