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


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)
