- Stability of the two wings of the coiled-coil domain of ClpB chaperone is critical for its disaggregation activityYo Hei Watanabe
Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Konan University, Okamoto 8 9 1, Kobe 658 8501, Japan
Biochem J 421:71-7. 2009....
- Orientation of the amino-terminal domain of ClpB affects the disaggregation of the proteinSayaka Mizuno
Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Konan University, Kobe, Japan
FEBS J 279:1474-84. 2012..These results indicate that the NTD supports the substrate binding of ClpB and that its conformational shift assists the threading and disaggregation of substrate proteins...
- Roles of conserved arginines in ATP-binding domains of AAA+ chaperone ClpB from Thermus thermophilusTakashi Yamasaki
Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Konan University, Okamoto, Kobe, Japan
FEBS J 278:2395-403. 2011..In addition, the two arginines in AAA-1 and the ATP-induced motion of the middle domain independently contribute to the stabilization of the hexamer...
- Temperature-dependent regulation of Thermus thermophilus DnaK/DnaJ chaperones by DafA proteinTadashi Mizutani
Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Konan University, 8 9 1 Okamoto, Kobe 658 8501, Japan
Genes Cells 14:1405-13. 2009..The results indicate that DafA inhibits the chaperone activities of both DnaK and DnaJ by forming the KJA complex and can act as a thermosensor under both heat stress and optimal growth conditions...
