Heat shock proteins (yellow), artwork. The production of heat shock proteins increases when cells are exposed to raised temperatures or other stress. Here the heat shock protein is acting as a chaperone for another protein (white). This role involves ensuring correct folding of the protein and in some cases transporting the proteins across membranes within the cell.
