Proteins are crucial to all cellular processes. So for a cell to stay viable, it has to keep its proteins in shape. In technical terms, it’s called protein folding, and it refers to the process by which proteins assume their biologically functional 3-D structure. Proteins can quickly misfold under elevated stress or heat, and misfolded proteins lose their functionality and even clump into harmful aggregates.
