In vivo aspects of protein folding and quality control

  title={In vivo aspects of protein folding and quality control},
  author={David Balchin and Manajit Hayer-Hartl and F Ulrich Hartl},
Most proteins must fold into unique three-dimensional structures to perform their biological functions. In the crowded cellular environment, newly synthesized proteins are at risk of misfolding and forming toxic aggregate species. To ensure efficient folding, different classes of molecular chaperones receive the nascent protein chain emerging from the ribosome and guide it along a productive folding pathway. Because proteins are structurally dynamic, constant surveillance of the proteome by an… CONTINUE READING
