Chaperones/chaperonins help protein folding =Hsp60 Chaperones bind to exposed hydrophobic residues of nascent polypeptide, help folding, and protects from aggregation until properly folded
Background image of page 4
Chaperones/chaperonins help protein folding =Hsp60 Chaperonins recognize hydrophobic surfaces of proteins (thus misfolded), unfold the protein and allows refolding in a “protected” environment (partially hydrophobic cavity).
