Description
Description

The small Heat Shock Protein (sHSP) family is characterized by the presence of an α-crystallin domain. sHSPs play a crucial role in protein folding. Most sHSPs have the ability to prevent protein aggregation and to maintain substrate proteins in a refoldable state. (Adapted from FBrf0228040 and FBrf0231212).

Notes on Group

FBrf0231212 reported that heat shock stimulates the transcription of all sHSPs with the exception of CG14207 and CG13133 in S2 cells.
