APICAL DOMAIN OF THE CHAPERONIN FROM THERMOPLASMA ACIDOPHILUM
The crystal structure of the substrate binding domain of the thermosome, the archaeal group II chaperonin, has been determined at 2.3 A resolution. The core resembles the apical domain of GroEL but lacks the hydrophobic residues implied in binding of substrates to group I chaperonins. Rather, a large hydrophobic surface patch is found in a novel helix-turn-helix motif, which is characteristic of all group II chaperonins including the eukaryotic TRiC/CCT complex. Models of the holochaperonin, which are consistent with cryo electron microscopy data, suggest a dual role of this helical protrusion in substrate binding and controlling access to the central cavity independent of a GroES-like cochaperonin.
