The djlA Gene Acts Synergistically with dnaJ in Promoting Escherichia coli Growth

By Pierre Genevaux, Françoise Schwager, Costa Georgopoulos and William L. Kelley


The DnaK chaperone of Escherichia coli is known to interact with the J domains of DnaJ, CbpA, and DjlA. By constructing multiple mutants, we found that the djlA gene was essential for bacterial growth above 37°C in the absence of dnaJ. This essentiality depended upon the J domain of DjlA but not upon the normal membrane location of DjlA
