NEW CLASS OF CHAPERONE PROTEIN DISCOVERED
Researchers use data from the CMCF to describe the cradle-shaped structure of an unique chaperone protein called Spy.
Feb. 16, 2011
Chaperone proteins make possible the correct folding of other protein molecules in the cell. Researchers have induced bacteria to overproduce a periplasmic chaperone protein called Spy. These unique cradle-shaped dimers help protein refolding and suppress protein aggregation independently of ATP.Nat. Struct. Mol. Biol. 18(3), 262-269
