Calf thymus Hsc70 and Hsc40 can substitute for DnaK and DnaJ function in protein renaturation but not in bacteriophage DNA replication


Ziemienowicz, A; Konieczny, I; Hübscher, U (2001). Calf thymus Hsc70 and Hsc40 can substitute for DnaK and DnaJ function in protein renaturation but not in bacteriophage DNA replication. FEBS Letters, 507(1):11-15.

Abstract

Calf thymus (ct) Hsc70 has been shown previously to reactivate heat-inactivated prokaryotic and eukaryotic enzymes, while DnaK was able to reactivate solely prokaryotic enzymes. Here, we report on isolation from calf thymus of a DnaJ homolog, ctHsc40, and on testing of its cooperative function in three different assays: (i) reactivation of heat-inactivated DNA polymerases, (ii) stimulation of the ATPase activity of ctHsc70 chaperone, and (iii) replication of bacteriophage lambda DNA. Surprisingly, ctHsc70/ctHsc40 chaperones were found to reactivate the denatured prokaryotic and eukaryotic enzymes but not to promote bacteriophage lambda DNA replication, suggesting species specificity in DNA replication.
