Gene Family: Heat shock 70kDa proteins (HSPA)

A subset of : Heat shock proteins

Hsp70: The 70 kilodalton heat shock proteins ( Hsp70 s) are a family of conserved ubiquitously expressed heat shock proteins. Proteins with similar structure exist in virtually all living organisms. The Hsp70s are an important part of the cell's machinery for protein folding, and help to protect cells from stress. [Source: Wikipedia]
