A Dancer Caught Midstep: The Structure of ATP-Bound Hsp70

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

4 Scopus citations


Hsp70 ATP binding induces substrate release, but the transiency of this state has inhibited its characterization. In this issue, Kityk et al. determine the Hsp70*ATP structure utilizing engineered disulfide bonds, providing insights into the workings of this essential molecular machine.
