E. coli trigger factor is a protein of 48 kDa which was recently identified as a ribosome-bound peptidyl-prolyl-cis/transisomerase (PPIase) capable of catalysing protein folding in vitro. We found trigger factor in association with nascent polypeptide chains, suggesting a function in the co-translational folding of proteins. Sequence comparisons revealed a homology of a segment of trigger factor with PPIases of the FK506 binding protein (FKBP) family. Here, we report on the purification of… CONTINUE READING
