HSPs are among the major targets of the immune response to bacterial, fungal and parasitic pathogens. The antigenic nature of HSPs is emphasized by evidence that mammals are capable of recognizing multiple B- and T cell epitopes in these proteins. The powerful immunological features of HSPs have led to their experimental use as immunomodulators and as… CONTINUE READING
