Purification and characterization of the 16-kDa heat-shock-responsive protein from the thermophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus vulcanus, which is an alpha-crystallin-related, small heat shock protein.

Abstract

A 16-kDa protein, one of the major proteins that accumulates upon heat-shock treatment in the thermophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus vulcanus, was purified to apparent homogeneity. The N-terminal and internal amino acid sequences of the protein exhibited a homology to the alpha-crystallin-related, small heat shock proteins from other organisms. The… (More)
