Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
altered pathway pertinent to protein folding, sorting, modification, translocation and degradation +   
Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated degradation pathway  
kallikrein-kinin cascade pathway +     
peptide and protein hormone metabolic pathway +    
protein degradation pathway +   
protein exocytosis pathway +  
protein folding pathway +  
Those reactions and molecular interactions underlying the folding of a protein into its functional three-dimensional structure. Folding takes place in the cytoplasm and, in the case of secreted proteins, in the endoplasmic reticulum. Proteins are checked (quality control) for proper folding and misfolded proteins are targeted for degradation.
protein modification pathway +   
protein modification pathway in the secretory pathway 
protein secretory pathway +   
protein sorting pathway
