The homologue of groESL from Porphyromonas gingivalis was cloned and sequenced. Nucleotide sequencing suggested an operon containing two open reading frames (ORFs) homologous to groESL operon of Escherichia coli. The upstream ORF consisted of 267 bp corresponding to 89 amino acid residues. The downstream ORF consisted of 1635 bp corresponding to 545 amino acid residues.
