Unformatted text preview: lac promoter relative to catabolite repression II. Heat shock response Fig. 13.13 A. Both a regulon and stimulon with >30 genes B. Not only induced by heat - other stresses, too. C. Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs) - highly conserved among most organisms D. HSPs have normal functions 1. Chaperones - help fold proteins: GroE, DnaK, DnaJ, GrpE 2. Proteases - Lon, Clp E. Role of sigma-32 (ó 32 ) - major; sigma-24/sigma-E (ó 24 /ó E ) - minor F. sigma-32 = rpoH G. 15x induced protein after heat shock, but not so much mRNA H. Role of DnaK (HSP - sigma-32-regulated) 1. binds to misfolded proteins 2. during heat shock is occupied with misfolded proteins 3. during normal growth binds to sigma-32 a. prevents sigma-32 from binding to promoters b. causes sigma-32 to be degraded I. Heat shock response is transient - cell will accommodate higher temperature...
