Although its chaperone activity requires association with ribosomes, TF is present in vivo in a 2 3 fold molar excess over ribosomes and a fraction of it is not ribosome-associated after cell lysis. Here we show that TF follows a three-state equilibrium. Size exclusion chromatography, crosslinking and analytical ultracentrifugation revealed that uncomplexed TF dimerizes with an apparent Kd of 18 μM. Dimerization is mediated by the N-terminal ribosome binding domain and the C-terminal domain of TF, whereas the central peptidyl prolyl isomerase (PPIase) and substrate binding domain does not contribute to dimerization. Crosslinking experiments showed that TF is monomeric in its ribosome-associated state. Quantitative analysis of TF binding to ribosomes revealed a dissociation constant for the TF-ribosome complex of approximately 1.2 μM. From these data we estimate that in vivo most of the ribosomes are in complex with monomeric TF. Uncomplexed TF, however, is in a monomer-dimer equilibrium with approximately two thirds of TF existing in a dimeric state.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Patzelt, Holger</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bukau, Bernd</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Rauch, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Patzelt, Holger</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kramer, Günter</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kramer, Günter</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Deuerling, Elke</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Deuerling, Elke</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:39:00Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
