Ryoo demonstrated that in addition to increasing chaperone molecules and increasing endoplasmic reticulum volume, cells could also relieve ER stress by inducing increased degradation of the mis-folded proteins.
The very large quantity of HCV protein transcribed by the endoplasmic reticulum requires more chaperone molecules to accomplish this increased folding load.
One class of chaperone molecules, called chaperonins, performs the important task of shepherding newly made proteins away from each other and helping them fold into the correct shape.
