Heat shock or stress proteins (Hsp) are typically regarded as being intracellular proteins that have a range of functions including the maintenance of cellular integrity. Members of the Hsp70 family of molecules have been implicated in the processing and presentation of antigen and the cross reactivity of lymphocytes specific for pathogen-derived heat shock proteins with self Hsp70 has been suggested to be an underlying cause of certain autoimmune diseases. This study reports the presence of… CONTINUE READING
