... of course don’t forget chaperones-proteins that help other complex proteins to fold propperly. Mutation of some chaperons can be lethal-eg HSP90 . Cheers!

Re: protein folding

... ribosomes have that function ...so does that mean that most of mutations in genes for chaperones wouldn't be lethal? And I read that mutation for hsp90 would be lethal in early embrionic stage.... Now do you know some diseases related to non functional chaperones? And if someone has idea about ...
