The archaeon Methanopyrus kandleri is the most thermophilic methanogen presently known. It contains a chaperonin (thermosome) which represents a 951 kDa homo-hexadecameric protein complex with NH4+-dependent ATPase activity. Since its synthesis is not increased upon heat shock, we set out to test its chaperone function. In order to obtain the chaperonin in amounts sufficient for functional ...
