About this book

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.


Chaperonins - introductory perspective, R.J. Ellis; evolutionary relationships of chaperonins, R.S. Gupta; chaperonins of photosynthetic organisms, A.A. Gatenby; chaperonin-mediated folding and assembly of proteins in mitochondria, T. Langer and W. Neupert; structure and function of chapronins in archaebacteria and eukaryotic cytosol, K.R. Willison and A.L. Horwich; regulation of chaperonin gene expression, S.M. Van der Veis and C. Georgopoulus; kinetic and energetic aspects of chaperonin function, A.R. Clarke and P.A. Lind; role of prokaryotic chaperonins in protein folding, J. Martin et al; chaperonin structure and conformational changes, H.R. Saibil; immunological aspects of chaperonins, A.R.M. Coates.
