Xenopus small heat shock proteins, Hsp30C and Hsp30D, maintain heat- and chemically denatured luciferase in a folding-competent state.

Abstract

In this study we characterized the chaperone functions of Xenopus recombinant Hsp30C and Hsp30D by using an in vitro rabbit reticulocyte lysate (RRL) refolding assay system as well as a novel in vivo Xenopus oocyte microinjection assay. Whereas heat- or chemically denaturated luciferase (LUC) did not regain significant enzyme activity when added to RRL or… (More)
