A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The chaperonin GroEL adopts a double-ring structure with various modes of allosteric communication. The simultaneous positive intra-ring and negative inter-ring co-operativities alternate the functionality of the folding cavities in both protein rings. Negative inter-ring co-operativity is maintained through different inter-ring interactions, including a salt bridge involving Glu 461. Replacement of this residue by Lys modifies the temperature sensitivity of the substrate-folding activity of this protein, most likely as a result of the loss of inter-ring co-operativity. The crystal structure of the mutant chaperonin GroELE461K has been determined at 3.3A and compared with other structures: the wild-type GroEL, an allosteric defective GroEL double mutant and the GroEL-GroES-(ADP)7 complex. The inter-ring region of the mutant exhibits the following characteristics: (i) no salt-bridge stabilizes the inter-ring interface; (ii) the mutated residue plays a central role in defining the relative ring rotation (of about 22 degrees) around the 7-fold axis; (iii) an increase in the inter-ring distance and solvent accessibility of the inter-ring interface; and (iv) a 2-fold reduction in the stabilization energy of the inter-ring interface, due to the modification of inter-ring interactions. These characteristics explain how the thermal sensitivity of the protein’s fundamental properties permits GroEL to distinguish physiological (37 degrees C) from stress (42 degrees C) temperatures.
