chap·er·o·nin (shap″ər-oґnin) any of various heat shock proteins that act as molecular chaperones in bacteria, plasmids, mitochondria, and eukaryotic cytosol. They are large multi-subunit proteins with ring structures and act by enclosing unfolded proteins and preventing their nonspecific aggregation during assembly.
