Chapter 6 Protein folding, degradation, and misfolding (pages 387-398; figures 6-82 to 6-96) 1. Some proteins begin to fold while being synthesized - co-translational protein folding 2. Molecular chaperones help protein folding - heat-shock proteins (hsp) - hsp 60 and hsp 70 - molecular chaperones share affinity for exposed hydrophobic patches 3. Proteasome - processive protein degradation 4. Ubiquitin conjugating system marks proteins for destruction 5. Many proteins are controlled by regulated destruction
