T HE central dogma of molecular biology holds that proteins contain within their primary amino acid sequence all the information that is required to dictate their three-dimensional structure. In principle, therefore, proteins can fold spontaneously (2). It is now clear, however, that the proper folding of many proteins requires facilitation. The facilitation reaction is accomplished via interaction with chaperonins, a class of multisubunit toroidal complexes which hydrolyzes ATP as part of the… CONTINUE READING
