Legionella pneumophila has two 60-kilodalton heat-shock proteins


Legionella pneumophila is a thermotolerant bacterium. To learn more about the thermal adaptation of this organism, we studied the properties of the Legionella 60-kDa heat-shock protein (MopA, GroEL-analog, HtpB, Lp-Hsp60) in L. pneumophila and in an Escherichia coli strain containing the cloned gene. Lp-Hsp60 was found in both cytosol and membrane fractions… (More)
