Potassium ions and the molecular-chaperone activity of DnaK.


Potassium ions stabilize the DnaK.ADP complex that forms on incubation of nucleotide-free DnaK with ADP or ATP. Generation of the crystallographically defined Mg2+ cluster [Wilbanks, S.M. & McKay, D.B. (1995) J. Biol. Chem. 270, 2251-2257], in which two K+ and the nucleotide are bound together with Mg2+ in the ATPase site, appears to be essential for the… (More)
