E. coli GroL, recombinant protein from E. coli
Escherichia coli groL (NP_418567) recombinant protein expressed inEscherichia coli .
In 25 mM Tris-HCl, 100mM NaCl, pH 7.5 (5 mM DTT, 10%glycerol)
2-8°C short term, -20°C long term
groL is an essential gene. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10599]. The Escherichia coli chaperone protein GroEL (Hsp60) and its regulator GroES are necessary for the proper folding of certain proteins , . [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG10599].
The bacterial chaperonin groEL is a double toroidal assembly, which together with the action of the ring-shaped oligomeric cochaperonin, GroES, facilitates protein folding in an ATP dependent manner.
