Chaperone binding at the ribosomal exit tunnel.
O.Kristensen, M.Gajhede.
The exit tunnel region of the ribosome is well established as a focal point for interaction between the components that guide the fate of nascent polypeptides. One of these, the chaperone trigger factor (TF), associates with the 50S ribosomal subunit through its N-terminal domain. Targeting of TF to ribosomes is crucial to achieve its remarkable efficiency in protein folding. A similar tight coupling to translation is found in signal recognition particle (SRP)-dependent protein translocation. Here, we report crystal structures of the E. coli TF ribosome binding domain. TF is structurally related to the Hsp33 chaperone but has a prominent ribosome anchor located as a tip of the molecule. This tip includes the previously established unique TF signature motif. Comparison reveals that this feature is not found in SRP structures. We identify a conserved helical kink as a hallmark of the TF structure that is most likely critical to ensure ribosome association.

Figure 3. Hallmarks of the TFrb Structure(A) Electrostatic properties of the TFrb structure displayed as a GRASP (Honig and Nicholls, 1995) surface. A region containing many basic residues is located at the tip of the molecule while negative charges dominate one face of the b sheet of the structural core.(B) Stereo view of the ribosomal anchor region, molecule B.(C) We observe different loop conformations of the ribosomal anchor. From left to right (blue to light green) are shown the three conformers observed in the SeMet-TFrb crystal. The conformation of the loop in the F44L structure (yellow) is most similar to the least well-defined loop configuration, molecule C.

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time. Where a reference describes a PDB structure, the PDB codes are shown on the right.
