    ..Hsc66 is activated by DnaJ of E. coli in the same manner as DnaK, the natural partner protein of DnaJ. However, Hsc62 is distinct from the others: the ATPase activity of Hsc62 was not elevated by DnaJ. ..

    ..coli possesses at least three Hsp70 homologs (DnaK, Hsc66 and Hsc62). We found that Hsc62, which is the product of hscC, is a new member of the Hsc66 subfamily, and is specific to E. coli. The analysis also suggested that YegD of E...
