Nonequivalence observed for the 16-meric structure of a small heat shock protein, SpHsp16.0, from Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
Small heat shock proteins (sHsps) play a role in preventing the fatal aggregation of denatured proteins in the presence of stresses. The sHsps exist as monodisperse oligomers in their resting state.Expand
