In a Nature article published in 1993, Anthony L. Fink and colleagues reported how Hsp70 chaperones use ATP binding in the presence of K+, rather than hydrolysis, to accelerate substrate release. As of the summer of 2008, his article had received 297 citations. I discuss here the influence Tonys iconic article has had on the chaperone field.
