Distinct activities of Escherichia coli small heat shock proteins IbpA and IbpB promote efficient protein disaggregation.

Abstract

It has been proposed that small heat shock proteins (sHsps) associate with aggregated proteins and change their physical properties in such a way that chaperone-mediated disaggregation and refolding become much more efficient. Here, we investigate the influence of two Escherichia coli sHsps, IbpA and IbpB, on the properties of aggregates formed under heat… (More)
