› Repeat search in UniProtKB (90,050)
Protein which is transiently involved in the noncovalent folding, assembly and/or disassembly of other polypeptides or RNA molecules, including any transport and oligomerisation processes they may undergo, and the refolding and reassembly of protein and RNA molecules denatured by stress. Though involved in these processes, chaperones are not an integral part of these functioning molecules. Also used for metallochaperones, which function to provide a metal directly to target proteins while protecting this metal from scavengers.
