Functional similarities between the small heat shock proteins Mycobacterium tuberculosis HSP 16.3 and human alphaB-crystallin.


Mycobacterium tuberculosis heat shock protein 16.3 (MTB HSP 16.3) accumulates as the dominant protein in the latent stationary phase of tuberculosis infection. MTB HSP 16.3 displays several characteristics of small heat shock proteins (sHsps): its expression is increased in response to stress, it protects against protein aggregation in vitro, and it… (More)
