The molecular structure of GroEL-like protein from pea leaves has been studied by electron microscopy and image analysis of negatively stained particles. Over 1500 molecular projections were selected and classified by multivariate statistical analysis. It was shown that the molecule consists of 14 subunits arranged in two layers with 72 point group symmetry. Side view projections of the molecule show a four-striation appearance, which subdivides both layers of seven subunits into two halves… CONTINUE READING
