A chaperone protein is a protein that guides the folding and assembly of another molecule in the cell into its proper shape, but does not otherwise modify or bind to it. There are chaperones that affect the conformation of proteins and DNA. The lack of chaperone proteins in one cell type can restrict the type of recombinant proteins that can be produced in it.
