Alpha B-crystallin and 27-kd heat shock protein are regulated by stress conditions in the central nervous system and accumulate in Rosenthal fibers.


To understand the significance of the accumulation of alpha B-crystallin in Rosenthal fibers within astrocytes, the expression and metabolism of alpha B-crystallin in glioma cell lines were examined under the conditions of heat and oxidative stress. alpha B-crystallin mRNA was increased after both stresses, and alpha B-crystallin protein moved from a… (More)
