Proteins are the molecular machines that control and regulate
most of the vital cellular functions in living organisms, and
account for about half of the total dry mass of the cell. For a
protein to function properly, it must attain its correct
conformation and location within the crowded milieu of the cell.
A complex set of molecular chaperone proteins assist polypeptides
to acquire their native functional fold within the relevant
biological timescale....[Show more]
