  Domain Name: GroEL
GroEL_like type I chaperonin. Chaperonins are involved in productive folding of proteins. They share a common general morphology, a double toroid of 2 stacked rings, each composed of 7-9 subunits. The symmetry of type I is seven-fold and they are found in eubacteria (GroEL) and in organelles of eubacterial descent (hsp60 and RBP). With the aid of cochaperonin GroES, GroEL encapsulates non-native substrate proteins inside the cavity of the GroEL-ES complex and promotes folding by using energy derived from ATP hydrolysis.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
