Proteasome-Related HslU and HslV Genes Typical of Eubacteria Are Widespread in Eukaryotes


Many eubacteria contain an ATP-dependent protease complex, which is built by multiple copies of the HslV and HslU proteins and is therefore called HslVU. HslU proteins are AAA + ATPases, while HslV proteins are proteases that show highly significant similarity to β subunits of proteasomes. Therefore, the HslVU complex has been envisaged as a precursor or… (More)
