Molecular chaperone function of the Rana catesbeiana small heat shock protein, hsp30.

Abstract

Eukaryotic small heat shock proteins (shps) act as molecular chaperones by binding to denaturing proteins, preventing their heat-induced aggregation and maintaining their solubility until they can be refolded back to their normal state by other chaperones. In this study we report on the functional characterization of a developmentally regulated shsp, hsp30… (More)
