The small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are a ubiquitous family of molecular chaperones. We have identified 18 sHSPs in the Caenorhabditis elegans genome and 20 sHSPs in the Caenorhabditis briggsae genome. Analysis of phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary dynamics of the sHSPs in these two genomes reveals a very complex pattern of evolution. The sHSPs in C. elegans and C. briggsae do not display clear orthologous relationships with other invertebrate sHSPs. But many sHSPs in C. elegans have… CONTINUE READING
