    The significance of the action of heat-shock proteins may not have been
    clear. Stress reveals mutations that have accumulated over time but were
    hidden by the protective role of heat-shock proteins. These mutations
    would only be useful in dealing with the specific stress if they
    providentially happened to be relevant.
