Problem 1 Problem 1) Hsp70 molecular chaperones are thought to bind to hydrophobic regions of nascent polypeptides on ribosomes. The bacteria E. coli has an Hsp70 chaperone called DnaK. To test whether DnaK binds to polypeptides as soon as they are synthesized you use a pulse-chase and immunoprecipitation analysis. You do the following experiments: A) You obtained from another lab antibodies that supposedly bind specifically to DnaK but they did not show you the supporting evidence. Your first task is to test whether you can use these antibodies to immunoprecipitate DnaK and any proteins bound to DnaK. You also need to show that this co- immunoprecipitation is specific, that is, that any protein that shows up in the gel was truly bound to DnaK instead of being bound by the antibodies or the beads themselves. (Some antibody or bead preparations are very sticky and will easily bind random proteins. You do not want this!) You fed E. coli

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
