Cyanobacteria are the only prokaryotes that perform oxygenic photosynthesis and are thought to be ancestors to plant chloroplasts. Like chloroplasts, cyanobacteria possess a diverse array of proteolytic enzymes, with one of the most prominent being the ATP-dependent Ser-type Clp protease. The model Clp protease in Escherichia coli consists of a single ClpP proteolytic core flanked on one or both ends by a HSP100 chaperone partner. In comparison, cyanobacteria have multiple ClpP paralogs plus a… CONTINUE READING
