ABSTRACT
The article presents an encyclopedia entry for "molecular chaperones." They refer to the protein family that mediates the correct folding of other proteins, and, in some cases, their assembly into oligomeric structures. Molecular chaperones assist the folding of protein by inhibiting the alternative folding pathways that lead to nonfunctional structures.
