Two models are being considered for the mechanism of chaperonin-assisted protein folding in E. coli: (i) GroEL/GroES act primarily by enclosing substrate polypeptide in a folding cage in which aggregation is prevented during folding. (ii) GroEL mediates the repetitive unfolding of misfolded polypeptides, returning them onto a productive folding track. Both(More)
