I have no idea what the mechanisms affecting protein folding are in this context, but if you are interested in learning more about how proteins fold and perhaps helping researchers fold interesting new ones, check out FoldIt (a protein folding citizen science project): https://fold.it/portal/

It was featured in Werner Herzog's Lo and Behold and I had the privilege of taking a class taught by a professor involved in its development. The community there can do a little bit to restore your faith in humanity and technology.

This still exists? I'll have to check it out again sometime...
