The first of its kind, this volume presents the latest research findings on the chaperonins, the best studied family of a class of proteins known as molecular chaperones. These findings are changing our view of some fundamental cellular processes involving proteins, especially how proteins fold into their functional conformations.
* Origins of the new view of protein folding
* Prokaryotic chaperonins
* Eukaryotic chaperonins
* Evolution of the chaperonins
* Refolding of denatured proteins
* Organelle biosynthesis
* Biomedical aspects
