Abstract

It has been shown that in Escherichia coli the chaperone DnaK is necessary for the late stages of 50S and 30S ribosomal subunit assembly in vivo. Here we focus on the roles of other HSPs (heat-shock proteins), including the chaperonin GroEL, in addition to DnaK, in ribosome biogenesis at high temperature. GroEL is shown to be required for the very late 45S-->50S step in the biogenesis of the large ribosome subunit, but not for 30S assembly. Interestingly, overproduction of GroES/GroEL can partially compensate for a lack of DnaK/DnaJ at 44 degrees C.
