Proteins that are expressed outside the cell must be synthesized, folded, and assembled in a way that ensures they can function in their designate location. Accordingly, these proteins are primarily synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), which has developed a chemical environment more similar to that outside the cell. This organelle is equipped with a variety of molecular chaperones and folding enzymes that both assist the folding process, while at the same time exerting tight quality… CONTINUE READING
