Chaperones just prepare proteins for folding on their own

The proteins in our cells are produced as long chains of amino acids that must fold precisely into their final shape. The key players in this folding process are the so-called molecular chaperones; protein helpers that make sure this process is successful. Researchers from Utrecht University, in close collaboration with colleagues from Heidelberg University, have … Read moreChaperones just prepare proteins for folding on their own
