Polypeptide folding is often mediated by other proteins called chaperones. Describe how a mutant chaperone protein might be responsible for a genetic disorder involving an enzyme.

Summary Introduction

To describe: The ways in which a mutant chaperone protein might be responsible for genetic disorder involving an enzyme.

Introduction: The amino acids are the subunits of a protein that are linked together with the help of chemical bonds. The proteins are the building blocks of the body that are translated by DNA. The enzymes are made up of proteins that act as biocatalyst in a living organism.

Explanation of Solution

Proteins are the tools that are used by the cells. Chaperone protein helps in the folding of other protein into proper shape. In order to function properly, chaperone proteins should have a proper shape. If the chaperone protein is defective, it could fold the wrong protein...
