Most proteins must fold into defined three-dimensional structures to gain functional activity. But in the cellular environment, newly synthesized proteins are at great risk of aberrant folding and aggregation, potentially forming toxic species. To avoid these dangers, cells invest in a complex network of molecular chaperones, which use ingenious mechanisms to prevent aggregation and promote efficient folding. Because protein molecules are highly dynamic, constant chaperone surveillance is… 
Molecular chaperone functions in protein folding and proteostasis.
TLDR
This review focuses on recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of chaperone action in promoting and regulating protein folding and on the pathological consequences of protein misfolding and aggregation.
Roles of the nucleotide exchange factor and chaperone Hsp110 in cellular proteostasis and diseases of protein misfolding
TLDR
Recent progress is highlighted in understanding the enigmatic Hsp110 class of heat shock protein that acts as both a potent nucleotide exchange factor to regulate activity of the foldase Hsp70, and as a passive chaperone capable of recognizing and binding cellular substrates on its own, and its integration into the proteostasis network.
Functional principles and regulation of molecular chaperones.
TLDR
This review discusses the principal characteristics of different classes of molecular chaperones, their structure-function relationships, their mode of regulation and their involvement in human disorders.
Molecular chaperones: guardians of the proteome in normal and disease states
TLDR
It is now apparent that molecular chaperones not only promote protein folding in the “forward” direction by facilitating folding and preventing misfolding and aggregation, but also facilitate protein unfolding and even disaggregation resulting in the recovery of functional protein from aggregates.
Molecular chaperones and neuronal proteostasis.
TLDR
The importance of molecular chaperones in neurodegenerative diseases is focused on, advances in understanding their protective mechanisms are discussed, and they are considered exciting therapeutic targets.
Hsp70 – a master regulator in protein degradation
TLDR
Proteostasis, the controlled balance of protein synthesis, folding, assembly, trafficking and degradation, is a paramount necessity for cell homeostasis and the fate of an Hsp70 substrate is dictated by the combination of partners (cochaperones and other chaperones that interact with HSp70 in a given cell context.
The rise of proteostasis promoters
TLDR
The term “proteostasis promoters” is proposed as a more accurate descriptor for a class of compounds that demonstrate ability to promote proteostasis by modulating the UPR and/or the function of chaperones.
Molecular Chaperones: Structure-Function Relationship and their Role in Protein Folding
During heat shock conditions a plethora of proteins are found to play a role in maintaining cellular homeostasis. They play diverse roles from folding of non-native proteins to the proteasomal

TLDR
This work reports some extracellular proteins that are reported to interfere with two qualitatively different aspects of protein aggregation formation of highly structured b-sheet rich amyloid fibrils and/or generation of amorphous protein aggregates.
Protein Folding in the Cell
TLDR
Current status of protein folding in the cell is discussed with special reference to chaperone pathways in  de novo  folding, chaperones acting downstream of the ribosome, proteostasis network and protestasis network as drug target.

Protein folding in the cytoplasm and the heat shock response.
TLDR
The mechanisms that ensure the maintenance of a functional proteome under normal and stress conditions are also of great medical relevance, as the aggregation of proteins that escape the cellular quality control underlies a range of debilitating diseases, including many age-of-onset neurodegenerative disorders.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the innate cellular protein homeostasis capacity can be enhanced to fold mutated enzymes that would otherwise misfold and be degraded, using small molecule proteostasis regulators.

TLDR
The proteostasis network is described, a set of interacting activities that maintain the health of proteome and the organism that has the potential to ameliorate some of the most challenging diseases of this era.

TLDR
Significant progress has been made in the understanding of the ATP-dependent mechanisms used by the Hsp70 and chaperonin families of molecular chaperones, which can cooperate to assist in folding new polypeptide chains.

TLDR
It is proposed that small molecules can enhance proteostasis by binding to and stabilizing specific proteins (pharmacologic chaperones) or by increasing the protestasis network capacity (proteostasis regulators) and that such therapeutic strategies, including combination therapies, represent a new approach for treating a range of diverse human maladies.
