Chaperones are proteins that assist in protein folding and multi-protein complex assembly co-translationally or post-translationally. Generally, a single chaperone has multiple client proteins. An example of chaperones are heat shock proteins, which are upregulated in response to heat – a risk factor for protein misfolding and aggregation.
