Abstract

In section 1.1, we started out with the generalization that the functional form of a protein is obtained merely by synthesizing the polypeptide chain on ribosomes and by letting it fold spontaneously. Although this is the basic concept, there are frequent biological amendments to this scheme which are of great importance. These phenomena are discussed here.
