Specificity of the Escherichia coli chaperone DnaK (70-kDa heat shock protein) for hydrophobic amino acids.


Molecular chaperones form a class of proteins that bind selectively to nascent, unfolded, misfolded, or aggregated polypeptides. This property is the basis of their implication in many cellular processes such as protein folding, protein targeting to membranes, or protein renaturation after stress. It has been suggested that the recognition of non-native… (More)
