i'm having trouble understanding exactly how chaperones help proteins fold. BiP particularly can anyone recommend a link?

The chaperonin creates a hydrophobic environment for the denatured protein to be seperated from the factors that caused it to become denatured. But the chaperonin doesnt actually renature the protein itself.

again, don't forget the GroEL-GroES complex. It uses bunch of ATP, so this one is for sure active process
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
