The article presents hydration studies on the archaeal protein Sso7d using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. It states that in the study DNA binding domain overlaps with the protein region involved in chaperon activity, which is hydrated only in a small central region.

    We use NMR directly in live human cells to describe the complete post-translational maturation process of human superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1). We follow, at atomic resolution, zinc binding, homodimer formation and copper uptake, and discover that copper chaperone for SOD1 oxidizes the SOD1...

    Sti1/Hop is a modular protein required for the transfer of client proteins from the Hsp70 to the Hsp90 chaperone system in eukaryotes. It binds Hsp70 and Hsp90 simultaneously via TPR (tetratricopeptide repeat) domains. Sti1/Hop contains three TPR domains (TPR1, TPR2A and TPR2B) and two domains...
